a very particular project
train the trainers
for a world with future through vocational training


education and energy


education and energy are basic conditions for a sustainable development.

The BMZ (Federal Ministry for Economic, Cooperation and Development) writes in a strategy paper:  „Africa has all possibilities", especially in the energy field by the use of renewable energy sources and enhancing energy efficiency to provide a modern and sustainable energy supply for all citizens.“

Profound education and training for teachers

Messbungen am Koffer in AfrikaThe basis for this is profound education and training in the field of sustainable energy supply with renewable energies.

Profound education... This is exactly the aim of the project:

Trainers from German vocational schools support African colleagues on the subject of photovoltaics and show how modern technology can be used to make the sun's energy available to everyone.

"Initial and further training for teachers is supported by the BMZ initiative Green People's energy for Africa, which was launched by Federal Minister Dr. Gerd Müller, and is funded by GIZ".

Multiplying knowledge and education

The African colleagues pass on this knowledge in their countries to their pupils and students and try to train as many people as possible and implement projects locally.

On our pages you will find a lot of information about this important project "Training of trainers for a world with a future through vocational training".
