Save the Date: Alumni event Horn of Africa  4 November 2021 from 14.30 to 17.30 hrs (EAT).

The Alumni Challenge is a way to showcase the strength and impact of alumni in the Horn of Africa (Ethiopia, Kenya, South Sudan, Sudan, Uganda). Our alumni action heroes have designed and developed interventions that they think will be successful in addressing issues pertaining to Security and Rule of Law.

After receiving more than 60 very promising proposals, the winning ideas were chosen by Nuffic, the NAAs and the Embassies. The winning ideas will be presented during the online conference on 4 November 2021. The aim for this event is to create a regional online platform to develop capacity in the selected thematic areas and to foster networking and stimulate collaboration between alumni, sector specific stakeholders, knowledge institutions and governmental bodies.

All winners will pitch their ideas during the conference. You will have time to ask questions and give feedback about the presented ideas.

Next to the pitches by NL alumni, the programme contains speeches by:
• Titia Bredée, Director-General of Nuffic
• Henk Jan Bakker, Ambassador of the Netherlands to Ethiopia
• Adrine Atuiine, Research, IT and Knowledge Coordinator at RTF

Please register yourself if you want to participate. We need your contactdata in order to send you the link for the event: http://www.nuffic.nl/en/alumni-challenge-2021-horn-of-afr…

The deadline for registration is Wednesday 3 November 2021 at 15.00 hrs (CET).
