HEKS/EPER is making a difference in the «Job market integration» in Africa

HEKS/EPER operates in six countries in Africa: Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, Niger, Senegal, South Sudan and Zimbabwe. Rural community development is central to its commitment. HEKS/EPER supports smallholder families in building better, more stable livelihoods through improved access to drinking water and land, natural resource preservation, the use of organic farming methods and through disaster preparedness measures. Smallholder families enhance their food security, diversify their income streams and are better protected against drought and flooding. In times of acute famine HEKS/EPER and its local partner organizations provide humanitarian aid. HEKS/EPER also promotes prevention and conflict resolution in tense situations.

Unemployment can be devastating in our society. Lack of social recognition, social isolation, illness and depression are potential consequences of unemployment. Thus, when the jobless re-enter the world of work, it is not just a matter of securing a livelihood, but also of boosting their overall state of health. There are many reasons for joblessness. There is no reason to abandon the jobless, however. HEKS/EPER supports jobseekers in the regions of Aargau/Solothurn, Basel Stadt/Baselland, Berne, Eastern Switzerland, Western Switzerland and Zurich/Schaffhausen in re-entering the job market.
