GREENING AFRICA TOGETHER
Uniting and Strengthening Green Service learning Projects
Greening Africa Together is united by the aim to encourage, empower, and enable African youth to fight climate change and provide perspectives in Africa together.
Our approach is led by the idea of universal fraternity and Service Learning. We support an active cooperation between students and local communities from different cultures and nations. In the spirit of a united world, all our projects aim to create sustainable positive change for people and nature across cultural, religious and social borders.
An International Network of universities, NGOs and Communities
The members of Greening Africa Together are African and international NGOs, universities and communities collaborating in the field of green development. We are supported by institutions, business partners and sponsors. The participants of our projects are local and international students, volunteers, teaching staff and communities, taking concrete steps towards social and green development in Africa.
We welcome new members (NGO, Universities, Communities) and new partners (business partners and sponsors) with the the same objectives.
International Network of Service Learning ProjectS
Communities and social projects linked to our members in Africa and the Middle East express their needs that can be solved using renewable energy, energy efficiency measures, and environmental preservation. The communities participate actively in project development and all further steps.
Groups of students from the member universities in Africa, Europe, and the Middle East as well as volunteers work in international groups in cooperation with communities on the projects. The students, mostly with a background in renewable energy and environment, learn by applying their knowledge and gain experience and skills in their fields. Volunteers and communities are trained likewise.
All projects are under the responsibility of a local member NGOs, which develops a sustainability concept for the project in collaboration with communities and working groups. An integral part of this concept are the training of local community members who are in charge of the project as well as a financing plan for the maintenance of the installations.
