It’s been great so far; my expectations are being met because I’ve met Africans who are in Africa and in the diaspora.

Intra-Africa Mobility Scheme – Cheikh Anta Diop University, Senegal (2018 – 2020)

Country of origin: Benin

Well, I joined ASAF because when I applied for my mobility, I saw that there was no reliable information available on social networks, and so this network makes available and promotes the various mobilities financed by the European Union. Apart from that, ASAF is a network for former students and alumni to get together and make available to their universities in their countries of origin the information and skills they have acquired during their mobility.

As a member of the ASAF board, I see ASAF as being able to be the pillar of education in Africa, and as being a structure or a network that can accompany African students, give them the opportunity to benefit from a quality education, and accompany them towards the world of work.

“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”

Become a part of this brilliant forum and contribute to improving the quality and integration of higher education in Africa. – Join us now to network and to collaborate with African change agents.

I joined ASAF because I wanted to follow up on my mobility because, at the end of my mobility, I felt like there is nothing behind after the mobility.

Amazing, the experience has been so amazing. We have had fantastic networking, interaction, collaboration, and together we’ve implemented a lot of programmes and activities and I believe that in the coming few years we are going to do a lot more.

The reason that I joined ASAF is because I was looking for a way of serving and working with a network of like minded people.

Imane Benrabiaa
Erasmus+ ICM — West Bohemia University, Czech Republic (2019), Eötvös Loránd University, Hungary (2022)

Country of origin: Morocco

After I finished my first mobility in the Czech Republic, I came back home, and I wanted to find another community that has that international feel that I can share my expertise with, what I learned and also just share the fact that we all went to other places, that we all have that experience of somewhere new. So finding ASAF members and interacting with them has been really a gift to me, and I am really glad I decided to join.

I look forward to a better ASAF, a strong ASAF, a Pan African ASAF, and ASAF that has all it takes to initiate projects and aid development in the continent of Africa.

Why did I join ASAF? I joined ASAF because I believe in our vision and mission to build the Africa that we want in the future.

Degel Sharon Agoreyo
Intra-Africa Mobility Scheme — Addis Ababa University, Ethiopia (2019 — 2022)

Country of origin: Nigeria

I am a member of ASAF, and I’m currently in the International Collaboration Task Force. This has been a really interesting experience for me. One of the things I do in ASAF is to bring collaboration between ASAF and other networks.

Florence Chisomo Matisa
Intra-Africa Mobility Scheme

My experience with the mobility scheme has been perfect. As you have already heard I'm Malawian, I'm now studying in Uganda. I'm doing my masters there and it has helped me to experience other cultures and other lifestyles. Here in Ethiopia I'm able to interact with other people from different countries.

Everlyne Samita

ASAF has given me an opportunity to be able to experience skills, technologies that I used in Europe and I brought it back to my students and this is just to talk to other students and other staff that ASAF is good and I really encourage you to join it because there are greater opportunities!

Williams Baah
Intra-Africa Academic Mobility Scheme, Ethiopia

I will use this opportunity to advise young Africans to participate in these mobility schemes as it is a very good avenue to get better education and to get exposed to other fields or other regions on the continent. And of course to awaken your own spirit that we can make Africa better ourselves as the youth of the continent.

Boniface Yamungu Alongo
Intra-Africa to Uganda

I would encourage other youth out there. They should know that nothing comes for granted and you need to have focus. Once you are focused then you can see: “Okay, this is what I need to do in life”. Then, search for opportunities that are related to what you need. So, please, don't say, “This scholarship is meant for some other people”. You can apply for the first time and fail. You can apply for the second time or so many times and fail but when your time comes you will get that opportunity. So it’s better to try. Never say it is not possible before you try it.

Patience Mansa Gakpetor
Intra-ACP Academic Mobility Scheme, Namibia

I think this is a great idea and this is going to help us...share ideas on how we can promote higher education in Africa. I think we've all been excited. We are enthused about this idea.

Anthony Simbeya
Erasmus + Phoenix Academic mobility, Wales

The academic mobility enhanced his critical thinking and appreciation of collaboration in an effort to foster and sustain development. He believes in the African collective potential and reaching out to those unaware of life changing opportunities. Therefore, has an intrinsic motivation to represent and participate in African development as an ASAF co-Ambassador.

Celestin Mvutsebanka
Erasmus mundus/Stettin from University of Burundi to Aix Marseille University

I would advise everyone to come to the ASAF family because it holds benefits, services, information and maybe opportunities when everyone gets together since there is strength in numbers such as the number of ASAF members. I want to say welcome to the big ASAF family, to all the alumni and students.

Cosmas Kombat Lambini
Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees

For all students and alumni who are interested in building strong networks in the African continent I think ASAF is the best place for you to join to meet people who have similar experiences as you.

I‘ m person with disability. I joined ASAF because I want to know the experiences of the other, so that I strengthen my skill and I become an agent of change in my country.

Anne-Eunice Botny-Capel
Mwalimu Nyerere Scholarship and Academic Mobility Programme

I had the chance to participate in one of the ASAF Regional Workshops and was encouraged to do so in order to expand my network and find new opportunities. Furthermore, I have always enjoyed discovering new cultures. So have you ever benefited from a mobility programme or scholarship offered by the European Union? Don't hesitate to join ASAF.

Amadou Banda Ndione
Intra-ACP Academic Mobility Scheme

We want to build an important network of students who are able to reflect on the problems of our continent and then find solutions that our different countries can bring to light.

Mohammed Baha Said
Erasmus+ short-term International Credit Mobility

If you have the opportunity to get a scholarship and go abroad to do your studies, just go because it's a really special, unique, amazing, inspiring experience. And you're going to learn a lot of things, you're going to meet a lot of cultures and you are going to develop your skills.
