Have you ever imagined the impact you could make by joining a network of entrepreneurs who support humanitarian missions in Africa? The Mercy Ships Network offers you the opportunity to be a part of the entrepreneurs who are changing the world and bringing smiles to the faces of those in need.

Why join this network of entrepreneurs?

Mercy Ships Network is a network of meetings, exchanges and sharing between entrepreneurs who want to change the world and impact the planet in a sustainable way, through concrete actions. This network is built around strong human values and entrepreneurs who are aware that their actions can make a difference in the day-to-day lives of those who really need it.

The entrepreneurs in the network are invited to conferences, meetings and other events organized by Mercy Ships to inform, promote and encourage the work of the organization in Africa’s impoverished populations.

What is the mission of Mercy Ships Network?

Mercy Ships Network supports the projects of Mercy Ships Switzerland through a variety of activities, including funding humanitarian missions in Africa and promoting volunteerism…

What is the basic membership package?

The first 50 entrepreneurs who join the network receive a founding membership in the Mercy Ships Network. This is a unique recognition of their involvement in the formation of the network and a testament to their commitment to Mercy Ships.

A dedicated page on the Mercy Ships Switzerland website will be dedicated to Mercy Ships Network members, on which the name of the entrepreneur and their company logo will be displayed to highlight their commitment (you can of course indicate your wish not to appear publicly on this page).

All members have access to a selection of media (photos, videos, documents…) via a dedicated application, which is only accessible to Mercy Ships Network members.

Members can use these resources to promote and enhance their involvement in the network, whether as part of their CSR policy or otherwise.
