The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) is launching a digital competence network for German teachers in sub-Saharan African countries. With the "GFL- Competence Network Sub-Saharan Africa", it is responding to the increased demand for German as a foreign language (GFL) and promoting the academic training of experienced German teachers. The programme is being funded by the Federal Foreign Office with a total of 1.2 million euros until the end of 2026.


The DAAD introduced a new scholarship programme “Leadership for Africa” (LfA) four years ago, with an aim of supporting young refugees and national scholars from selected countries to pursue their master’s degrees in Germany.  This year, LfA applicants must be citizens of either Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, South Sudan, or Uganda, or refugees residing in either of these countries.
