The private sector as partner

The private sector is the engine of economic growth, generating income and jobs. From the outset, Swisscontact has worked together with the private sector to foster sustainable development and widespread prosperity in developing countries and emerging economies.

One example is Swisscontact’s cooperation with the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) and Geberit, a leading company in sanitation technology, in training vocational school teachers in Ukraine. Thanks to this collaboration, students are getting first-hand experience using the latest technologies. This improves their employability while simultaneously increasing their incomes.

Collaboration with the private sector enhances the impact and sustainability of our interventions. As the commitment by private firms focuses on a specific field of business, these interventions are replicable and scalable.
