Education for a future
Young people in Germany voluntarily campaign for young people in southern Africa. That is - in simple words - Go Ahead!. We use the energy, the enthusiasm and the motivation of young adults, to create sustainable future prospects in southern Africa by supporting educational projects for children and teenagers.
The focus of our engagement lies in educational work and intercultural exchange. In contrast to many traditional aid organisations, Go Ahead! does not regard development collaboration to be a one-way street. Global educational work begins, therefore, in Germany, for example with school workshops on development policy. The university groups founded in many German cities encourage young people to take on global responsibility through their campaigns. In southern Africa, our concept of intercultural exchange is implemented within the scope of various volunteer programmes.
The most important principle of our work is the implementation of joint educational projects on equal footing with our partner organisations. With the aim of working to combat worldwide inequality, Go Ahead! can be regarded as an intermediary between Germany and South Africa. We exclusively support non-governmental organisations that work in the corresponding local communities. We are not focussed on creating new structures, but on supporting the innovative concepts of local organisations.
Go Ahead! guarantees that 100% of every donation is received by our project partners in southern Africa.
