New exchange programme for young people

Important aims of the German-African Youth Association (DAJ) are 
to create scope for exchange, build intercultural bridges and master tasks 
for the future jointly. The new exchange programme for young Africans 
and Germans was started at the end of June 2016 at the behest of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and the 
African Union Commission (AUC).

Before the DAJ came into being, individuals or school groups 
already had contact. Now the BMZ is cooperating with other social groups: youth groups – scouts, sports clubs or music groups – meet and work 
together on themes such as climate change, poverty or their respective 
images of Germany and Africa. The exchange is initially with three 
pilot countries: Benin, Tanzania and South Africa.
