As Quakers, more formally called Members of the Society of Friends or simply, Friends, we seek the inner light which directs our lives. Our faith in the Truth within each person challenges us to reconcile our inner reflections with lives that manifest the simplicity, peace, integrity, community, equality, and stewardship testimonies.
The belief in the Divine within each person and the interconnected nature of all things leads Friends to a deep conviction that the world’s problems can be resolved in peaceful ways.
This page has information about Quaker faith, our history in Switzerland, the social projects we support, and our events.
