Das Einsatzland: Nigeria

Wie es funktioniert

Through the Corona Pandemic and the push of several movements like "Black Lives Matter" and "Fridays for Future" there has been a push towards a critical examination of numerous existing systems that cement inequality especially in the Global South. This includes a critical examination of DC and the deployment of volunteers from the Global North in countries of the Global South. With the mobilization of an ever-growing young diaspora in the DACH region, there is a poll of people with African heritage that can promote global partnership in a positive way without cementing colonial stereotypes. To this end, overseas assignments in which people from the diaspora with key skills support West African sustainable enterprises and social enterprises are organized. This ensures a long-term exchange, as young people from the African Diaspora in the DACH region see foreign assignments not only as a learning assignment for themselves, but as a long-term development of these regions. Basically, the assignments are seen as support for the locally based start-ups and companies and are not a substitute for local labor.

Our partner is based in Nigeria with offices in the US and Nairobi. Our partner is a non-profit organization that supports African women entrepreneurs by bridging the gender financing gap. The organization's ultimate goal is to leverage the experience of institutional investors to prepare African women leaders at every stage of their business.

Wie es funktioniert

You pay a deductible. This covers flight, accommodation, visa fees, preparation costs and assignment fee. Why? Because the African Cultural Foundation_Org is a small organization with few financial resources. The exchange program is currently funded exclusively by ADEPT on a small scale and part of the funding goes directly to the first component of the project, the mentoring and business development of self-employed women in Nigeria. In order to be able to invest as much financial resources as possible in this component and to cover the costs of a diaspora assignment which amount to about 3.800 € per person.
