Services for NGOs

The CAGI assists international non-governmental organizations (NGOs) already established or seeking to do so in the Geneva region.


Volunteering is a social contribution in favour of others and the environment. It is characterized by its unpaid and voluntary nature.

The golden rules of volunteering define the framework conditions for successful voluntary work.

In particular, they limit volunteer hours to a maximum of six hours per week as an annual average. It is understood that volunteer work complements and supports paid work but does not compete with it.
