WIDU.AFRICA project promotion among African in Germany


Share: fbli

Description of the project

Code for Afrika e.V. is supporting the promotion of the project among the African diaspora in Germany and some European countries.

“WIDU was developed for those who want to improve the economic situation in Africa sustainably. Specifically, the initiative is aimed at private individuals from the participating African diaspora in Germany who regularly transfer money to their home countries. With WIDU they gain insight into the funded project and its implementation from the beginning until the end. This allows diaspora donors to make sure that their transfer is deployed wisely. Entrepreneurs from participating African countries benefit equally from WIDU as they can invest in the sustainability of their businesses. The prerequisite for participation in the promotion programme is that the project partners already know and trust each other. It is also important that both parties – donors and entrepreneurs – are prepared to invest the same amount of money in the project. After successful coaching and proof of private investment on the platform, WIDU will match the joint contribution of the diaspora and the entrepreneur with a grant.”
