Besuch bei der Okumhlope High School in KwaZulu Natal

Ein Bericht von Sina Hener

Am 9. Dezember 2011 war es endlich soweit: Ich habe zum ersten Mal die Okumhlope High School (OHS) in KwaZulu Natal, Südafrika besuchen dürfen. Nachdem das Projekt „EinStein für Afrika“ nun fast zwei Jahre existiert und schon zum zweiten Mal ein beachtlicher Betrag von 3600 Euro vom Albert-Einstein-Gymnasium in Ravensburg für die OHS gesammelt wurde, konnte ich dieses Jahr das Geld persönlich übergeben. Meine Anwesenheit bei der Geldübergabe war deshalb möglich, weil ich im Esimphiwe Baby Home in Richmond in der Provinz KwaZulu Natal ein freiwilliges Soziales Jahr ableiste.

Supporting Government Policy Making: Sharing South African and German Think Tank Experience

Conference Report

South Africa and Germany have a well developed think tank community, ranking among the best in their respective regions. They can play a key role as ‘analysis channels’ in assisting their governments in their global roles. The 21st century global environment, however, requires think tanks to focus and evaluate constantly how relevant their work is for policy makers. Therefore KAS with its partner SAIIA, supported by the ISS, HSS and the German Embassy, convened a workshop with representatives from German and South African think tanks, journalists and government representatives.
