our mission

Lifespark is a non-profit organization, founded in 1993, with no religious or political affiliation.
We are based in Switzerland, have about 300 members worldwide and pursue the vision
of a world with human dignity being the fundamental and unconditional basis of societal systems.

As organization, we want to take a stand against the death penalty which we consider a cruel form of
punishment violating human rights, mainly by arranging penpalships (about 1600 since 1993)
with death row prisoners in the USA.

Within the framework of democratic structures, our organizational work is done on a voluntary basis
and financed by membership dues and donations. The organizational language is English; offers
in other languages are based on members’ initiatives. All members are welcome to contribute their
individual skills and interests in various tasks and projects.
