“ Supporting Alliance for African Mobility ” will create a VET network based on peer-to-peer connections between VET centres in Africa and Europe in order to obtain successful results, provide a bigger impact and create real and prosperous connections
SAAM is a pilot project funded by the European Commission with 4 million euros to promote the international mobility of students and professionals between Africa and Europe and thus improve youth employability and the quality of Vocational Training. It aims to promote the establishment of mechanisms for the exchange of knowledge, training methodologies and skills between Europe and Africa.
SAAM is an association composed by more than 30 organisations from 8 European Union countries and 16 African countries who work together for four years to determine if it is possible to implement a program similar to Erasmus+ VET between the two neighboring continents. This broad partnership brings together a network of both VET centres, NGOs and umbrella organisations in the field of VET and youth.
