The Arthur Waser Foundation places the human being at the center of all of its activities and regards human dignity as fundamental. It recognizes the right of every person to develop his or her potential and abilities and thus also the right to participation in the broadest sense.
The foundation sees the personal freedom of the individual as a prerequisite for a meaningful way of life, the expansion of horizons and the assumption of personal and social responsibility.
It is rooted in particular on the fundamental value of solidarity with disadvantaged population groups at home and abroad.
It is committed to diversity in all its dimensions.
It is politically and denominationally independent and rejects any form of fundamentalism.
In international contexts, the Arthur Waser Foundation pursues a partnership philosophy based on systemic approaches with self-determined and self-reliant partners.
