Main federations and networks based in Geneva

mondialFOH - Friends of Humanity

Geneva-based non-profit organizationsupporting initiatives and projects in four key areas: Human rights, Education, Healthcare and Environmental conservation. FOH projects are currently underway in Asia, Africa and Latin America. We operate both directly, by supporting initiatives and funding them, and indirectly, by playing an intermediary role in supporting projects of other humanitarian organizations when they are consistent with the statutes and objectives of FOH. Moreover, communication and raising public awareness are an integral part of the FOH mission. FOH was founded and registered on 16 May 2007 in Geneva, Switzerland, as a non-profit corporation. Upon creation, FOH took over several projects already launched previously by Graziella Zanoletti, president of the organization. Over the years, FOH constantly expands the number and scope of its projects.
