The GLOBAL CHANGEMATES FELLOWSHIP 2015 is a three-month program for dedicated and creative young people who seek to forge international connections with like-minded peers. Graduates, interns, trainees, project coordinators, junior project managers and volunteers with a proven track-record of civil society engagement will be eligible for participation.
Our fellows will be matched with peer-to-peer partners according to their work focus, interests and personalities to form German-Kenyan TANDEMS to enable mutually beneficial learning processes and kick-start joint projects. Instead of charitable projects, we are looking for projects based on mutual learning. We expect that both parties will share their skills and experiences in order to create benefits on both sides.
The GLOBAL CHANGEMATES program includes:
2 NATIONAL KICK-OFF WORKSHOPS in Berlin resp. Nairobi with this year’s fellows from Germany and Kenya
8-WEEK-TUTORIAL web-based guided working phase flanked by the ACTIVISM IN A BOX TOOLKIT
2 WEBINARS all fellows meet in the virtual classroom, listen to lectures, receive further information
CONVENTION WEEK the TANDEMS partners meet personally and kick-start their own projects
PUBLIC CONFERENCE on 6th + 7th November the fellows present their ideas and broaden their networks

In the process of establishing new links, expanding horizons, developing new ideas and implementing effective German-Kenyan activities, the fellows will be supported by the GLOBAL CHANGEMATES TEAM in Germany and Kenya. Prior experiences in working with partners in Germany / Africa is not required!
Travel and accommodation costs will be covered in accordance with the German Travel Expenses Act.
