Förderverein Humanitas FVH was founded in Switzerland in 1998 as a charitable organisation and registered in The Gambia in 2013 to develop, support and maintain projects in the range of education, agriculture and health. FVH is an association with more than 140 members trusting in the organization and supporting its projects in The Gambia – everything the association does, it does it in the name of its dear members.
All activities are charitable and not for profit. The organisation is sustained entirely by its members, their membership fees and generous donations from members, friends, public bodies and charitable institutions. The average annual budget of FVH comes to approx. CHF 30,000 of which approx. 98% are directly invested in The Gambia. All members of the Swiss FVH Board of Directors work for no fee and pay their expenses for travelling and accommodation privately.
