Swisscontact works in Rwanda to reduce youth joblessness, increase incomes of agricultural households, encourage entrepreneurship and innovation for a population living in rural and peri-urban surroundings. Swisscontact strengthens the youth prospects of gainful employment by facilitating technical skills training, developing transition strategies for a more commercialized agricultural sector, and fostering entrepreneurial thinking and action.
Swisscontact supports youth and the Government of Rwanda to improve access, relevance, and the quality of labour-market-oriented vocational training in the Western Province. The PROMOST project applies short term technical training sessions and apprenticeships to achieve improved income generation and employment possibilities. Swisscontact combines theoretical learning with practical skills and pilots a dual training system.
Swisscontact also works in enterprise promotion to increase the incomes of households. The interventions support market actors to adopt new practices that improve the way market systems work - particularly for the poor and MSMEs.
Additionally, Swisscontact works with local representatives within the business ecosystem. Initatives allow access to knowledge, project approaches, and resources that enhance economic and social significance while fostering entrepreneurship.
