The Team

The AFRIKA KOMMT! programme is implemented by the GIZ AFRIKA KOMMT! team.

Hildegard Vogelmann

Senior Project Manager

My source of energy and inspiration is a good read, a good laugh, thinking while stirring risotto and a moment of silence from time to time. 
Boosting change by unfolding the potentials of different interests, the treasure of diverse perspectives: this is what makes me passionate about AFRIKA KOMMT!.

Mirjam Zimmermann

Project Manager

I am passionate about capacity development and fell in love with the African continent and its people during a journey through South Africa. This is why I am part of AFRIKA KOMMT!

When I am not working, you will probably find me outdoors hiking or climbing, volunteering  or meeting friends from all over the world.

Phyllis Chege

Advisor Partner Companies, Marketing

‘Africa is rising’ for me goes beyond being just a maxim or popular rhetoric – I have seen it, I have lived it and I am IT. This is why I am passionate about raising up young African change makers through AFRIKA KOMMT!

When not at work, you will likely find me on my bike cycling to an unknown destination or with a backpack, on a train or plane, on the way to exploring a distant new land!

Carina auf der Straße

Specialist for Concepts and Trainings

When not fully absorbed in detailed concept writing, personal meetings and exchange make me really passionate about my daily work.

AFRIKA KOMMT!, it’s a pleasure to be a part of you!

Alfons Lutter

Fellow Administration

Every year when AFRIKA KOMMT! starts I am really looking forward to the new candidates.
