African Impulse publishes first edition of the NRW Magazine
The African Impulse e.V. has just published the first of 6 editions of the NRW Magazine. The magazine is available in digital and print form.
The state of North Rhein Westphalia (Nordrhein Westfalen), with its over 17.9 million inhabitants, is the most populous state of Germany. It is very multicultural and has the largest number of Africans in Germany. These Africans are very dynamic and mostly operate within associations centred around their countries of origins.
Through the NRW Zusammen project we want to continue strengthening the social cohesion of Africans in the state during these COVID 19 and post COVID 19 times. An important component of the project is its conceptual reciprocity in which we want to promote mutual cross-generational learning between youths and adults. For example, parents can acquire more competence in electronic media through younger people, while young people learn societal values and life experience.
With six issues of the NRW Magazine planned, we hope to engage the African community in NRW and provide them with targeted information which will help improve their quality of life here.

With the donation from the African Impulse e.V. we are contributing to the "Back to School" action of LOYOCAM aimed at supporting vulnerable children in the far north region of Cameroon as they start the academic year 2021/2022.
The Salaam Initiative is a youth-led initiative that supports the protection, education, re-insertion, and wellbeing of children affected by violent conflicts in the Far North Region of Cameroon. Due to the Boko Haram insurgency, these kids have become the main victims of the conflict, with many out of school, forcefully displaced, and are suffering from trauma. Unfortunately, these children have been separated from their families, left homeless and orphans with many becoming more vulnerable to exploitation and abuse, as well as radicalization and recruitment into arm groups. Our support of this project also shows our commitment in forstering North-South cooperation and targeting the vulnerable..Read more
