Swisscontact is the business-oriented independent foundation for international development cooperation. Represented in 34 countries with over 1,200 employees, Swisscontact has promoted economic, social and environmental development since 1959.
Swisscontact promotes economic, social, and environmental development. It fulfils its mission by generating opportunities for people to improve their living conditions through their own efforts, successfully integrating into the local economy.
Swisscontact serves as a catalyst for action by fostering a sustainable environment for entrepreneurship and facilitating access to information, skills, and markets, thus generating employment and income. Swisscontact provides practical, market-oriented, and locally adapted specific solutions to socio-economic development challenges.
Employment and income generation open pathways out of poverty and create long-term economic opportunities. A key condition for this is sustainable economic growth supported by an innovative private sector, which enhances structurally weak regions and incorporates disadvantaged groups in the population as active market participants.
Professional training and development, labour market integration, strengthening SMEs, access to financial services, and efficient use of resources lie at the heart of private sector development.
The Inclusive Market Systems approach advocated by Swisscontact seeks to introduce fundamental changes in market mechanisms to benefit the largest number of poor individuals as possible. Consequently, Swisscontact identifies sectors and value chains with specific growth potential for disadvantaged populations and develops strategies to facilitate changes through market stakeholders through extensive analysis of growth obstacles.
