At the invitation of the Kenyan Ministry of Education State Secretary (PS) Ambassador Simon Nabukwesi from the State Department for University Education and Research in the presence of the Director of University Education  Darius Mogaka Ogutu and his deputy Charles Obiero, a meeting with the German Ambassador to Kenya, Ms. Annett Günther, the cultural attaché at the German Embassy in Nairobi, Ms. Ulla Koos and the director of the DAAD Regional Office in Nairobi, Ms. Beate Schindler-Kovats, took place in the Ministry on 1st  March 2022.


The one-hour meeting served to get to know each other and exchange ideas. The Kenyan government wants more intensive cooperation with Germany and would like to expand university relations.

The DAAD offers scholarship programs and individual funding opportunities for Kenyans to Germany, and within Africa, there are numerous university co-operations between German and Kenyan universities. An extensive network of active alumni, organized in associations, supports the initiation of new partnerships.

At the meeting, it was agreed that the Ministry would give more support to the DAAD funding programmes in publicizing it and activating its social networks for tenders. The team from the University Education Directorate will soon be visiting the DAAD regional office in Nairobi to exchange information directly with the DAAD programme officers for the various programs and to discuss closer co-operation for marketing.
