The Southern African-German Journalists’ Programme is a multiyear effort to shape an integrated understanding of other countries and regions and to foster relations between Africa and Germany. It has been offered as a response to concerns about an increasing political and cultural detachment between Africa and Europe. The bursary is intended to enable young journalists to gain valuable insights into the political, economic, cultural as well and social fabric of the host country.
