ADEPT’s Diaspora Fellowship aims at establishing a new generation of diaspora-development leaders in Europe. The programme seeks to raise the engagement of the African diaspora youth to become active players in Europe in development, policy discussions and beyond.

ADEPT was pleased to work with our first Diaspora Fellows recruits. Two young African diaspora were appointed to work on ADEPT’s multimedia campaign and ADEPT’s stakeholder and membership engagement for 3 months. Stay connected to find out when our next round will be taking place.
