The Salève Foundation was created in 2019 with a mission of strengthening the capacity, improving the welfare, and developing the economic and social environment of underprivileged persons and populations. It focuses primarily on maternal and child health, girls’ education and skills-building, child protection, and the empowerment of women and girls.
The Foundation is named after the Salève, a small mountain on the foothills of the Alps. The name was chosen because of the mountain’s proximity to Geneva, where the Foundation is based. As well, in French “Salève” is a homophone of “Ça lève,” which means “it lifts up.” Lifting up individuals and communities in need, in close partnership with those people, is at the core of the Salève Foundation’s mandate.
The website is currently being developed. For inquiries about the Foundation, please use the Contact Us form.
