Transparent and verifiable

It is our duty to be fully transparent towards the children, our donors and supporters. We are therefore committed to complying with the standards of the ZEWO quality label.

Save the Children Switzerland is Zewo-certified. The Zewo seal of approval is granted to trusted aid organisations and guarantees the targeted, efficient and effective use of donations. The Zewo foundation regularly verifies compliance with the quality criteria.

We prepare our financial statements in accordance with Swiss GAAP FER to ensure that our accounting is transparent and reliable. Our financial statements are reviewed by independent auditors PricewaterhouseCoopers AG. Our current annual report includes our financial statements and detailed information about our project work and is available online.

Save the Children reviews its projects in Switzerland and abroad using standardised, international financial controlling instruments, field reports and project visits, ensuring that our work for children and their families is as effective as possible.

For every 100 Swiss francs donated in 2018,
83

francs were channelled directly into our national and international projects.
