Join our family of
We invite you to a unique life long learning experience by becoming part of our global family.
As radical as our approach is, so diverse is our family of program alumni, partners, clients and supporters around the world. What unites us all is our vision of a world of purpose-driven leaders. Our mantra is “Do what you really are!”.
Every six months, we meet up at the BOOKBRIDGE Summit to re-connect, celebrate achievements and learnings while making an impact. In addition, many alumni stay engaged as advisory board members or start their own initiatives.

Legal setup and audit
BOOKBRIDGE was incorporated as a tax-exempted foundation in Basel, Switzerland in 2010. To separate our impact investing activities from our action learning programs, BOOKBRIDGE GmbH was setup in Neumarkt, Germany. The GmbH is fully owned by the Swiss Foundation. The Foundation has closed partnership agreements with our country organizations and social enterprises. They are all legally independent institutions in their countries.
Friends of BOOKBRIDGE is an association founded in Switzerland and administered by Alumni of BOOKBRIDGE action learning programs in order to help fund scholarships in Mongolia, Cambodia and Sri Lanka.
