Swiss Contribution

The Shanti-Switzerland Association, founded in 2005, has many years of experience in educating electricians in Bangladesh. In cooperation with local partners and based on the dual Swiss model, five 2-year electrician apprenticeships’ in theory and practice, have been completed in northwest Bangladesh since 2007.


At the request of the local NGO RSUF, another electrician’s school will be built in the Rajbari district, one of the poorest areas of Bangladesh, as part of the project. About 25 apprentices will receive good general education, as well as electrical training in theory and practice in the 2-year courses, with a focus on renewable energies. Trained electricians are in great demand, find a job quickly and are able to build their own livelihood in the near future with their new earning potential.
