Skill development projects

Each of our projects draws upon the expertise of highly skilled professionals, supported by strategic global partnerships, and endorses our vision to improve our world with the power of skills.  

Our mission is to raise the profile and recognition of skilled people, and show how important skills are in achieving economic growth and personal success.
