The Daka Network (Daka = brothers and sisters) was launched in 2019 during an exchange program between social and educational professionals in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania, and Hamburg, Germany. We found wonderful perspectives, common challenges, friendship, and great inspiration. Many collaborations and ideas have emerged from the initial program.
We support each other in existing projects in Hamburg and Dar es Salaam, exchange expertise, and network with other actors.
The friendships that developed during the first exchange continue to exist and are regularly cultivated and expanded. Projects and cooperations that have already arisen are, in addition to the Professional meetings the Dinner for the Future, the proceeds of which provide financial support to the Ladies Joint Forum for the education of women.
Also, three participants from Dar Es Salaam were in Hamburg for an internship for 3 months each as part of the AFP-EL program. Another participant organized her own internship in Dar es Salaam.
