The constitution of Tree of Life International Foundation aimes to create a ONG family on an International level.
The international network has its driving force in the Helvetic Confederation, a worldwide symbol of cooperation between peoples and humanitarian commitment. Tree of Life International Foundation operates at an International level along four thematic areas: protection, education, development and emergency.
In Switzerland the Foundation is primarily engaged in awareness raising activities with education campaigns on rights, sustainable development, active and global citizenship.
The Swiss activity started from the Canton Ticino from an analysis conducted in 2011 that initially identified some areas of intervention within the juvenil disconfort area (youth deviations, bullying phenomena in particular), in the macro-area of the protection of childhood.
