About Pamoja

Pamoja is a mentoring program initiated by “Go Africa…Go Germany” Alumni Association (GOAL e.V.), with the objective of connecting GOAL members to young high school and university students in Africa and Germany who will benefit from the experience of GOAL members. GOAL e.V. is made up of over 100 young professionals and academics from Germany and over twenty African countries. Members of GOAL e.V. have a wide range of expertise not only in transnational German-African relations but also in all kinds of academic and professional fields that can help you realize your goals and potentials. These experiences are also valuable for all students who wish to add a cross-cultural perspective to their studies. Besides the exchange of experiences on policy issues regarding the African and European continent, suggestions towards educational and vocational opportunities are the expected outcomes of our mentor-mentee-teams.

How Pamoja Works

  1. First, applications are received from potential mentees in Germany and Ghana.
  2. After a careful evaluation of all applications, the Pamoja team will pair the mentee to a mentor within GOAL, who possesses the expertise the mentee seeks.
  3. The mentee will then be introduced to his/her mentor via Email or Skype. Together, the two shall agree on a working relationship including meeting times.
  4. Each mentee will have a mentor preferably from a different nationality.
  5. The length and duration of the mentor-mentee relationship would cover an appropriate amount of time. It’s all up to the mentor and mentee.
