Our Vision

A change in self-perception and external perception towards a new self-confidence, which is shaped by young hope bearers and carriers. Added value through future technology in harmony with the ecological and social environment. Healthy and sustainable national economies at an equal footing with global partners. Perspectives and potential. One thing above all: All this in Africa, for Africa and from Africa - as quickly as possible. That is our vision and with "3 E's" we strive for it.

Our Mission


By supporting and accompanying young African undergraduate, postgraduate and PhD students at African universities, perspectives are created in the form of the most sustainable of all forms of support: Education! This is the most powerful tool any human being can possess. Thus, we make a direct contribution to SDG 4 "Quality Education".


Africa is a beautiful, diverse, majestic and young continent. There is so much potential just waiting to be awakened. For this, it needs its own role models who carry hope. We want to help empower such trailblazers and offer them a platform to inspire others as well.


There is power in harmony, all the more so in existential relationships such as that between humanity and his environment. Research and business only have a future if they build up on this knowledge. That is why we only support projects that aim to achieve energy transition, climate change adaptation or mitigation, and thus contribute to SDG 7 "Affordable and Clean Energy", SDG 12 "Responsible Consumption and Production" and/or SDG 13 "Climate Action".

Don't wait for change, be part of it!
