About this project

#education By supporting and accompanying young African students and PhD students at African universities, perspectives are created in the form of the most sustainable support of all: Education!
#empowerment There is an incredible amount of potential in Africa that is just waiting to be awakened. For this, it needs its own role models who carry hope. We want to help empower such changemakers and offer them a platform to inspire others as well.
#ecofriendliness Research and business only have a future if they reflect and build on the existential relationship between humanity and the environment. Therefore, we only support projects that aim to achieve energy transition, climate change adaptation or mitigation.
