African German Youth Initiative

The African-German Youth Initiative (AGYI) is a multi-lateral initiative of the German Government and the African Union Commission aimed at enhancing youth exchange and mobility between African countries and Germany in the context of education for sustainable development. The intention is to contribute to the development of essential competencies and skills in young people from African countries and from Germany in view of a ´global citizenship´. It also aims at fostering a differentiated image of African countries on the German side, and Germany on the African side. Through the AGYI, partners in Germany and on the African continent will be supported to strengthen and set-up structures that foster a sustainable, mutual and partnership oriented exchange between young people from Germany and African countries . The AGYI should facilitate mutual learning and exchange of young people and aims at: •

Enhancing existing and supporting new partnerships through joint projects between African countries and Germany of young people (and multipliers) between the ages of 14 to maximum 35 e.g. from schools, youth Organisations, TVET Organisations, teacher Organisations, local governments and NGOs. • Building the capacity of implementing Organisations in African countries for developing and administering funding programs at regional level and promoting participation of the above actors and Organisations in such programs in exchange with German partners;
