Gulburak cover

When I travelled from China to Europe for my book Die neue Seidenstrasse - Chinas Weg zur Weltmacht, I visited some Helvetas projects in Kyrgyzstan. One of them is a tourism project in the Alay region where I met the young tourist guide Gulburak Begmataeva. See my story in the Helvetas magazine Partnerschaft.

In 2019, I visited the Rohingya refugee camp in Bangladesh for the second time. There was a lot of progress, but the situation for the people in the camp is still very challenging.

Helvetas assigned me to visit the Rohingya refugee camp in Bangladesh for the first time in spring 2018. See here the story the Helvetas magazine Partnerschaft published after this visit.



Thanks to the SKY project, young people in Ethiopia learn professional skills in a three-month training programme. After that they can find a job or start their own business more easily. I visited this project on behalf of the Swiss development organisation Helvetas in 2017.



In the northernmost part of Laos, next to the border with China, tea grows on centuries old trees and not, as is usal, on bushes. I visited the tea farmers in Phongsaly for Helvetas.

One year after the devastating earthquakes in Nepal, I visited the little village of Marbu at the foot of the Himalaya. The two earthquakes in 2015 destroyed Marbu completely. Helvetas supported the villagers with building new and earthquake resilient houses.
