Our expectations and values

Fondation Hirondelle is a Swiss non-profit organization that provides information to populations facing multiple crises. Through our work, millions of people in countries at war, in post-conflict or humanitarian crisis contexts, and in societies in democratic transition, have daily access to media that speak to them, and listen to them.

In putting this mission into practice, respect for the values and commitments described in the Fondation's Code of Conduct and Charter is essential. We are committed to ensuring that our values of independence, honesty, diversity and dignity are applied every day, through the decisions we make and by all our members.

Fondation Hirondelle has zero tolerance for all forms of sexual exploitation, sexual abuse and harassment, and abuse of power within its ranks.
