"Improving food security, resilience to climate change and economic hazards in the community world are challenges I have been working to address for over a decade. Together with SWISSAID, we will join forces to lead communities toward positive change."
Country Representative in Guinea-Bissau
Country representative for Tanzania
"I always love to talk with community members about their concerns, difficulties, achievement and how SWISSAID could better support their initiatives. It is very lucky to me to be a part of SWISSAID’s work with partnered CSOs for the people who really need supports in this difficult situation."
Kamam Zau Hkam
Country Representative in Yangon, Myanmar
"What particularly touches me about working at SWISSAID is the generosity of the farmers, even though their economic resources are very limited. Their behaviour has taught me to be more humane and to approach my fellow human beings as supportively as possible."
Co-Country Representative in Quito, Ecuador
"Working in development cooperation is more than a job – it is a choice of lifestyle. We at SWISSAID Ecuador are not just experienced professionals, but above all farmers who support each other and share a love of agro-ecology."
Country Representative in Quito, Ecuador
"Through my work at SWISSAID, I have been able to engage intensively with the difficult conditions faced by women and men in rural areas and to recognise their great resilience in the search for solutions. This helps to change the place they live fundamentally for the better."
Country Representative in Bogotá, Colombia
"SWISSAID places human dignity at the heart of all its interventions. This vision and our shared values are my main motivation for working here. Furthermore, there are no hierarchical barriers in our daily work together."
Olivier Ngardouel Mbaïnaïkou
Country Representative in N'Djaména, Chad
"SWISSAID aims to shape a society based on gender equality and traditional agricultural knowledge. It works with NGOs led by local people who share the same vision of society and are committed to and passionate about change."
Country Representative in Pune, India
"My work at SWISSAID has confirmed to me that the passion, motivation and perseverance of the people involved are essential factors for the success of development projects. In Tanzania, women farmers with a very low level of education prove this every day."
Senior Regional Advisor Africa and Programme manager for Guinea-Bissau
"Regularly ranked by the UNDP (United Nations Development Program) as one of the countries with the lowest human development index in the world, Niger faces immense challenges. By joining SWISSAID and through this organization, we intend to contribute to the well-being of this population so that they live in a more equitable world."
