Action from Switzerland (AfS) is a non-profit organisation based in Zürich that believes in solidarity with our fellow human beings being displaced by violence, conflict and persecution. Our work is focused on ensuring that everyone is able to exercise their rights, in dignity, regardless of their race, language or religion. We pay special attention in defending the rights and needs of the extra vulnerable displaced, especially women and girls, in order to combat exploitation and gender based violence and promote women’s rights and social inclusion. Our projects are all developed with the objective of delivering a dynamic response to the biggest humanitarian crisis since World War 2. We are also thoroughly committed to amplifying the voices of those displaced by maintaining a strong advocacy policy on the inhumanity of the situation on the ground in Greece and the political disaster causing breaches of human rights happening on a daily basis.
