Working at Swisscontact has been very rewarding, since I joined the organisation in May 2004. I have done different and interesting things and learnt a lot in each project we implement. The team is very warm-hearted, so I enjoy the great working atmosphere. Even though my background is in science, Swisscontact gave me the opportunity to get involved in other topics related to economic development or capacity building, so learning has become a permanent and motivating process. Working in regional projects allows me to know many people and different countries, where I can learn a lot from the culture and values of the people. I have learnt a lot from my boss and my colleagues and have made invaluable friendships. Thanks to business trips around the world, I have met many respectable people and could participate in events where experts discuss and propose actions to achieve a better and sustainable world for all. These are unforgettable experiences for which I am very grateful. Learning from Swiss culture has been very positive. Principles such as punctuality, discipline, respect and honesty are an incentive and I strongly hope that our emerging countries may – at some point – also cultivate these values throughout society. Being part of Swisscontact has brought many good and incredible things for me.
