How to Strengthen the Economy in African Developing Countries? (2018)

Recently, strengthening the economy in African developing countries has become an issue on the political agenda in Europe (Marshall Plan for Africa). This is above all a consequence of the increasing number of refugees coming from these countries to Europe. Many of them come for economic reasons since the prospects are meagre for find a job that allows earning an adequate income. Foreign Aid so far helped little to improve the situation. The work could start with a description of the political and economic situation in an African country or a group of countries. Reasons should be identified what hampers economic development. Built on this, a proposal should be outlined that might help to improve the situation. This can be either a concrete project on a micro level (e.g. improving access to education) or a broader project involving more participants.

The Team

Hello, our team consists of 10 students from the BBS Burgdorf in Hanover.

We are in the 11th grade with the subject area economy.

Together with our teacher Mrs Köhler we agreed on the topic: “How to Strengthen the Economy in African Developing Countries? “.  We think that African developing countries should be important for all western states.

Now we want to present ourselves:

Marius, 16 years old, is our team leader. He organizes our contacts to other schools and various organizations and speaks with our supervisors.

Lea, Fabienne and Merle (all 17) are the deputies. They help Marius with the project and are his right hand.

Our other team members are Alysa (19), Gizem (19), Alina (18), Carolin (17), Diana (17) and Franziska (16). They work on foreground tasks and add original ideas to the project.

We all are strong characters and have fun to engage for a “better world”.

With our experts and our special team spirit we will finish our project and reach our goal: To help the African development countries

We are happy to enjoy the YES-Projekt!
