Swisscontact’s involvement is to facilitate labour market integration through the following activities: strengthening life skills, information, consulting and guidance, support to set up a business, etc. All of Swisscontact’s vocational education programmes are geared toward the specific needs of the market. SME development projects focus on strengthening the private sector and specific economic sectors. Through our interventions we are able to increase participation of representatives of civil society and the private sector to work toward sustainable development.
