Development of Education Projects Across Africa

Delivering top level vocational training as in Switzerland, but in the countries where the students are, and at a fraction of the costs applicable abroad – this is our “education offshoring” approach, which guides our education activities.

Hospitality education:

In the hospitality sector, we are the exclusive business development partner for Africa of one of the top Swiss hospitality schools, the Business & Hotel Management School (, based in Lucerne/Switzerland. We have helped to facilitate introductions to local partners in:

  • Nairobi, Kenya where a first school was opened in 2015 (
  • Egypt where B.H.M.S now develops joint hospitality programs with Cairo for Investment and Real Estate Development (CIRA), the owner of Badr University in Cairo (
  • Namibia where we facilitated an introduction to a major hotel operator in the country, the United Africa Group, which is now developing the Windhoek Hospitality & Culinary College ( in partnership with B.H.M.S.

Early 2021, rainbow unlimited gmbh also won a tender issued by the Swiss State Secretariat for Migration (SEM) for “Vocational Education and Training in the Hospitality Sector in Africa” over 4 years. The project requires the organisation of VET courses in the sector, including a classroom instruction portion at a vocational school in Africa and a workplace training portion at a host company in Africa.

Other sectors:

Whilst our main focus is currently on the hospitality sector, we are also working to expand our portfolio to represent Swiss education providers with an interest in Africa in other sectors. First projects in this respect are currently being developed.
