I have been with the Skills 4 Life (S4L) Project at Swisscontact since April 2018. The project seeks to benefit unemployed, out-of-school youths. I joined the project because it provided a unique opportunity for me to serve marginalised groups like those in Turkana West. The recent visit by the Swiss President, Alain Berset, was a highlight for the project and demonstrated the personal interest and investment of the Swiss government. Engaging with the local representatives of the host community and balancing competing needs within the limited available resources has been an enlightening experience. I hope that the project interventions will continue to positively impact the target communities, that the people we serve will succeed without having to depend on Swisscontact, and that Swisscontact is able to secure funding to extend this project on a larger scale.
