DAAD Regional Office for East Africa celebrates 50th anniversary
In September 1973, the DAAD opened a small office in Nairobi, Kenya. The DAAD branch office soon transformed into a regional office for East Africa and is now responsible for Kenya, Burundi, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda, South Sudan and Ethiopia.
Take a look at this anniversary website providing the history of DAAD Nairobi and alumni portraits:
Germany is a well-respected partner country for higher education, business, and diplomacy. German-East African academic and diplomatic relations, which mark 60 years in 2023, have shaped the biographies of many African academics and alumni who are visible in the regional diversity, across cultures, subject disciplines, and academic traditions.
