Depuis plus de 20 ans, Swisscontact travaille en Ouganda pour améliorer les compétences et l’employabilité des jeunes, la compétitivité des entreprises, et promouvoir des systèmes sociaux et économiques inclusifs à travers l'approche des systèmes de marchés inclusifs (IM) issue des partenariats public-privé. Swisscontact joue le rôle de facilitateur dans l'élaboration et la mise en œuvre de solutions durables qui s'attaquent aux racines de la pauvreté.
Swisscontact Ouganda a quatre priorités stratégiques :
Ces priorités stratégiques incarnent les critères de durabilité (l'égalité des sexes et l'inclusion sociale), la capacité financière, la responsabilité environnementale et la bonne gouvernance.
In Uganda, Swisscontact has over 20 years of experience, with a footprint in over 70 districts. We provide services in project management, enterprise promotion, skills development, financial inclusion, trade facilitation, market linkages, capacity building and advice.
Swisscontact has an impressive track record in developing and implementing projects. Our projects take a holistic and systemic view of the issues and the local context in addition to actively promoting private sector engagement, a learning culture, and evidence-based adaptive management. In all Swisscontact projects, we value the people we work with while fostering accountability and transparency.
We provide value chain advice, enterprise development and facilitate the entrepreneurship ecosystem.
We facilitate access to market and demand-led technical and soft skills to address the mismatch of the labour force and the labour market. Through collaboration with private sector employers and other key stakeholders, we design appropriate skills development, skills upgrading and labour market insertion interventions. We offer support to school dropouts and those with limited access to formal skills acquisition and development opportunities.
We develop adaptable financial products to address the bottlenecks that hinder marginalized groups like youth, women, smallholder farmers and startups from accessing financing. Through financial literacy, we seek to increase the knowledge of individuals, so they make sound financial decisions.
We co-create and facilitate local, regional, and international business partnerships while promoting win-win propositions where roles are delineated, and benefit is mutual for all parties involved. We do this by creating business linkages between market actors, facilitating access to business development services, and providing institutional support to trade organizations, SMEs, and the Government.
The essence of inclusive markets development is enabling local stakeholders to take direct ownership of development. We build the capacities of project implementers, researchers, businesses, and the public sector to strengthen competencies for developing and implementing inclusive market development interventions.
