Our current fellows

The fellows of the AFRIKA KOMMT! programme started their AFRIKA KOMMT! journey virtually. This year, due to the exceptional circumastances brought about by the pandemic, two intakes of AFRIKA KOMMT! found themselves in Germany simultaneously. The AK9 fellows started their journey virtually in February 2021, making it to Germany in April. As for the AK10 fellows, they were thankfully able to begin the programme in person, arriving in Bonn in October 2021.

Before starting their work in their respective partner companies, the 30 AK9 and 54 AK10 fellows study German at the Goethe-Institut in Bonn and undergo a management training.

The current AK9 and AK10 fellows come from Angola, Botswana, Cameroon, Côte d’Ivoire, Egypt, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Morocco, Namibia, Nigeria, South Africa, Tunesia, Togo, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe. This year was the first time AFRIKA KOMMT! had a fellow join our programme from Tunesia (in AK9) and fellows from Morocco and Egypt (in AK10).
