Promost - Project journey and key achievements 2012 - 2020
Since 2012, Swisscontact implemented the Promoting Market Oriented Skills Training and Employment Creation (PROMOST) project in the Great Lakes Region. The project was funded by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation.
The programme’s overall goal was to contribute to increased employment and income generation for the disadvantaged rural population in target geographical areas in the Great Lakes Region (Western Province districts in Rwanda, safe rural areas near Bukavu in DR Congo and Kayanza Province in Burundi) by improving their access to quality and labor-market-oriented Vocational Training.
More specifically, it envisioned support to the local TVET and employment stakeholders as an effective and sustainable way to enhance employability of the mainly disadvantaged categories of the population by improving their skills and competences in line with labor market requirements and increased their income-generating capacity by supporting them in the employment or self-employment process.
