„Pamoja“ is kiswahili and means „together“. This is not only the name of our project but it also defines the main aim of our project. Part of the exchange is a visit of ten students from the university of Münster in Tanzania and a visit of ten students from Dar es salaam in Germany the following year. 

This exchange is completely self-organised by the students, who put a lot of effort into making the project work. Very important for us is communication on equal terms and equal participation of all twenty students. With our programme, we want to distance ourselves from outdated hierarchical western-dominated development policies and projects. Our goal is to analyse and criticise stereotypes and prejudice that we are getting to know every day through the media. 

The Project exists since 2009 and will take place for the fifth time. Each year the exchange was a great experience and enrichment for all the students. Unfortunately, there are only a few organisations that are able to support our project. Due to the financial support programmes not funding us we have a real financial issue.

For that reason, we need your help!! Please support our project, which has played an important role in the intercultural rapprochement for 8 years.

Please contact us if you have any further questions.
