This is done in cooperation with selected local partner organisations that are active in areas such as education, health, human rights and democracy, environment or food security.
Focusing on the following sustainable development goals (SDGs)
How we work
Comundo combines the know-how and professional experience of Swiss professionals working as co-workers in selected partner organisations on site in the Global South. They use their expertise to strengthen structures and networks in the thematic areas and to build up know-how. The realities, experiences and potentials of the partner organisations form the basis of all assignments. In this way, ownership remains with the local partners.
... and why
What if the right to a healthy and intact life no longer applies? What if problems such as lack of access to food or education cannot be solved by the people themselves? With our co-workers, we build a bridge from the North to the South to tackle global challenges together. Comundo initates help for self-help and promotes more responsible action in Switzerland with returned co-workers.
Seeking candidates mainly in
Comundo offers the chance to do meaningful work abroad, even without experience in development cooperation. You can share your professional knowledge and participate in a rich cultural exchange that broadens personal horizons. We provide our professionals with good security, and we accompany and support them in their work.
The positions are defined by our partner organisations. The one-year junior positions are for young professionals with a maximum of two years of professional experience. For a long-term assignment of 2-3 years, we require at least two years of experience in the corresponding professional field.
