Teaming up for resilience

In 2017, the Swiss Re Foundation found more ways for Swiss Re employees to lend their time and know-how to initiatives like the Global Entrepreneur Program (GEP), which challenges them to work with social entrepreneurs in teams to build up community-based Learning Centers in Mongolia, Cambodia and Sri Lanka. As well as doubling the number of GEP spaces, we launched one-to-one Learning Partnerships, which pair entrepreneurs in these countries with employees who have complementary skills.
