  • 1. Africa in Me Report 12 – 13
  • 2. During this 10 months journey as Africa in Me coordinator, I have accumulated many debts, only a few of which I have space to acknowledge here. I would like to thank Femi Adebayo with whom I worked closely during my tenure for his unflagging support and for deepening my passion for the region. Africa as a region faces a lot of challenges and Femi has shown great commitment to help me achieve my goals. I would like to express my profound gratitude to the all the AIESEC Entities in Africa for their collaboration and support in the implementation of this new strategy to deliver more experiences in the region. Special thanks to national team of the following entities which I had the chance to visit; Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Mauritius, Nigeria, Tanzania and South Africa. Participation and facilitation of conferences all over Africa gave me an opportunity to better understand the issues faced by the different AIESEC entities and gave me valuable insights on how to contribute to the betterment of their operations. Apart from the above, in the course of my work, I met many people whom I admire for their vision and understanding of AIESEC and Africa. I would like to mention a few of them: David Akara, Achieng Aringo, Gathoni Mwangi, Jacquie Kinyanjui, Babajide Okusanya, Daudo Vali,Elyn Hu Jiang Chuan, Caroline Tissot and Alexa Mabonga among others. Africa in Me Report 2012 -13 Acknowledgement
  • 3. Africa in Me Report 2013 I am thankful to all the non-African entities for their genuine interest and support to the Africa in Me strategy. I would like to express my sincere thanks to the AIESECers who have hosted me during the various business visits across mainland Africa. I have been deeply touched by their hospitality and sharing of their respective cultures. I am indebted to all of them. My family and friends in Mauritius who have been very patient and supportive. I love them for their faithful support. Working on the implementation of the implementation of the Africa in Me strategy has been truly a joint enterprise and a collaborative exercise. Apart from names mentioned, there are many others who contributed. I could not give all the names for want of space. They have contributed to my understanding of the complexities of running AIESEC operations in Africa. I appreciate their help and thank them for their support.

  • 5. Africa in Me Report 2012 -13 Introduction to Africa in Me Africa in Me Africa in Me is a strategy for AIESEC in Africa to develop massive amount of young people, especially African youth, by offering them a leadership platform. Africa in Me is the output of the working groups and is the updated version of “Active Contribution Program” which was the output of AfroXLDS 2012 in Mozambique. Africa in Me stand as a clear unifying strategy for AIESEC in Africa to deliver more powerful experiences on the continent. 1. Entities can develop different and innovative projects, as far as they are relevant to their societies, respond to specific needs, have a long-term impact and fulfill the principles for each area of impact. 2. All projects should contribute directly to the delivery of AIESEC Experience, considering all its phases (EwA, ELD, LLC) with focus to ELD programmes. 3. All projects should actively engage current and potential TN takers, EPs and TMP/TLP participants to create more AIESEC XPs. 4. All projects related to exchange (GCDP and GIP) must connect the interns with local communities and should have externals involvement from the creation to the delivery. 5. Entities can name the projects freely, as far as they are connected with the description and purpose of the program and areas of impact. 6. All projects should be financially sustainable through direct sales and/or financial models that enhances sustainability Principles Area of Impact
  • 6. Africa in Me Report 2013 Evolution of Africa in Me in 12-13 The Youth Active Contribution Program has been subject to some revisions at AfroXLDS 2013 in Ethiopia with regards to the program clarity. The clarity of the program was somehow a setback in its implementation by some African countries. Through various discussions and sessions with the MCP/MCPe, few amendments were brought to the program. They are the following:- • Youth Active Contribution Program was renamed as “Africa in Me” and is renamed as a strategy to deliver more and better experiences in Africa. • The fifth area of impact has been removed. Initially there was a fifth pillar which countries could select based on the prevailing issues of their respective countries. It was deemed to be unclear and confusing by the implementing entities. Africa in Me is the clear output of AfroXLDS 2013 and Rwanda, Ghana, Nigeria, Kenya, Ethiopia and Tanzania have shown commitment to incorporate this strategy in the Q4 operations and hence the “AFRICAN PROGRAM GROWTH AWARD” was launched. The output of the conference also contains pilot projects for all program under each area of impact. iGCDP • Career development – Lead & Bridge • Health Improvement – Project Grace • Education & Literacy – Reach to Teach oGCDP • Education & Literacy – Primary Education Quality iGIP • Business Solution – Information Technology oGIP • Education - Teaching
  • 7. Ethiopia Rating Based on:-  Member awareness of Africa in Me and education.  Implementation of Africa in Me activities for interns.  Aligning of local projects to fit the Africa in Me area of impact  Making GCDP financially sustainable.

Implementation Booklet Stepwise approach to implement AfroXLDS output in all African entities. Branding Campaign Guideline to implementation of activities promoting Africa. Match with AIESEC Africa Google documents links to facilitate matching of African TN (GCDP & GIP). Grants for Africa Different funds and grants available for African entities. Africa in Me reports Quarters reports of Africa in Me. Africa in Me Report 2013 Knowledge Management Africa in Me Wiki A wiki was created to provide all entities with relevant information and guidelines to implement Africa in Me in their respective entities.
  • 9. Africa in Me Report 2012 -13 Country Partnerships Based on the list of the 20 non-African countries who have the biggest amount of oGCDP and Non-African countries in the network which realizes more than 25% of their oGCDP with Africa, the following countries were contacted to enhance their presence in Africa by creating stronger partnerships with African countries. Very interested, created promotional material to promote African countries. Interested but have not agreed on a number or specific countries. Have not responded to the mail or are not interested to partner with African countries this year. Countries Field interested in African countries interested in Australia Mauritius, Senegal, Kenya Germany Botswana, Nigeria, Burkina Faso, Senegal, Ghana Switzerland Education, Social Work and Entrepreneurship.

  • 10. Foundation/donor Countries applied for Outcome UN Habitat Ethiopia, Ghana Announcement of grantees in October 2013. HSBC Mauritius Announcement in July 2013 Youth Solidarity Fund Togo Unsuccessful application Intercultural Fund All entities in Africa Unsuccessful application AIESEC UK Foundation All entities in Africa Unsuccessful application Scott Bader Foundation Mauritius/Ghana Unsuccessful application ( Have to apply from AIESEC UK) Africa in Me Report 2013 Grants & funds The following grants have been applied during the term 12-13. • Projects have to be sustainable and all expenses listed has to be as accurate as possible. • Look for the list of past recipient of the grant on the foundation website if available and ask for advice from AIESEC entities who have been successful applicants if there is. • Grant money generally take around 6 – 8 months from announcement date to be transferred to your account. Make sure if you are applying for a project and you are a successful recipient, enough transition is made about the project to be implemented going through the terms of the contract. • It is to be noted that international grants are more competitive than applying for CSR funds locally. Both sources of funds are to be considered but it takes more project management experience to write successful international grant/fund application and once the money is secured, the project is closely tracked by the funder. Based on your experience, each entity should devise their strategy with regards which fund they can handle. Recommendations for grant application The Africa in Me wiki contains a list of grants/funds available for all African entities and those available only for specific AIESEC entities. It also contains the timeline for these applications and entities who have applied for the fund before.

Red box represents a drop from the term 11-12. Growth in GCDP Most of the entities in Africa have increased in iGCDP in the term 12- 13. Cameroon, Cote D’Ivoire, South Africa, Togo and Ethiopia have shown the biggest relative growth with regards to this program. Togo grew tremendously in this program due to the Go West Africa Campaign. Cooperation with Nigeria and Ghana made Togo grow by almost 500% this program. oGCDP also grew a lot in many entities. This regional collaboration boosted iGCDP in Togo and oGCDP in Ghana and Nigeria. Botswana also grew a lot in this program through their partnership with AIESEC Tanzania. South Africa capitalised on partnerships with Brazil, India and Mauritius to grow this program by more than 100% A few drop in iGCDP were also seen in Uganda, Benin, Rwanda and Nigeria. Nigeria and Uganda dropped a lot in this program.
  • 16. Africa in Me Report 2013 TERM 11-12 iGC DP oGC DP iGIP oGIP Africa 1827 555 108 233 BENIN 70 7 1 4 BOTSWANA 2 25 1 2 BURKINA FASO 8 3 0 0 CAMEROON 78 22 11 19 COTE D'IVOIRE 31 49 1 41 ETHIOPIA 43 6 8 4 GABON 7 4 0 3 GHANA 260 67 21 19 KENYA 312 91 5 33 LIBERIA 5 0 0 1 MAURITIUS 329 15 2 16 MOZAMBIQUE 38 11 10 4 NIGERIA 123 133 24 36 RWANDA 29 3 4 4 SENEGAL 22 6 0 10 SOUTH AFRICA 35 44 3 7 TANZANIA 186 41 8 10 TOGO 67 4 0 12 UGANDA 182 24 9 8 GIP in Africa still a major challenge. The term 12-13 shows a lot of red in the GIP columns. oGIP dropped in almost every entity in Africa. African mainly face major visa issues and this may be a major hindrance to matching of African Eps. It was also found that Africans are very often not eligible to many GIP TNs in Africa . These TN often for Europeans or Asians. iGIP grew slightly but the leaders in iGIP in Africa namely Nigeria and Ghana dropped. There is a clear lack of sales capacity in the region. Even if the economy is booming in most of these entities, AIESEC has not yet cracked the code to sales of AIESEC products and mainly GIP sales to these emerging companies looking for their piece of the cake. GIP is clearly not close to be the cash cow of Africa. GCDP is still growing every year and Togo will surely be the good case practice in 13-14 for many small entities who will start to capitalize on regional cooperation. It is indeed a good strategy but financial sustainability should also be part of the equation.
  • 17. Africa in Me Report 2012 -13 Africa with the world iGCDP iGCDP being the main driver of AIESEC entities in Africa operation. 12-13 has seen some outstanding growth of operations with Africa by many entities namely:- • Argentina ( 3 in 11-12 to 10 in 12-13) • Austria (10 in 11-12 to 21 in 12-13) • Brazil (103 in 11-12 to 129 in 12-13) • China ( 363 in 11-12 to 453 in 12-13) • France ( 16 in 11-12 to 24 in 12-13) • Germany ( 131 in 11-12 to 196 in 12-13) • Hong Kong ( 15 in 11-12 to 27 in 12-13) • Italy ( 28 in 11-12 to 45 in 12-13) • Pakistan ( 6 in 11-12 to 22 in 12-13) • Portugal ( 10 in 11-12 to 20 in 12-13) Germany and Italy showed their eagerness to participate in Africa in Me. Germany is the only country in the world which does exchange with 16 entities in Africa out of 19 entities. oGCDP Out of top 10 TN providers to African EPs we can find only 3 Non African countries:- • India (2nd with 114 TN provided to Africa in in 12-13) • Brazil (8th with 31 TN provided to Africa in in 12-13) • Egypt (9th with 28 TN provided to Africa in in 12-13) OGX is mainly being driven through regional cooperation and it is a trend in most in entities in Africa. oGiP Out of top 10 TN providers to African EPs we can find 5 Non African countries:- • India (1st with 58 TN provided to Africa in in 12-13) • Turkey (2nd with 20 TN provided to Africa in in 12-13) • Germany (3rd with 9 TN provided to Africa in in 12-13) • Colombia (4th with 6 TN provided to Africa in in 12-13) • Japan (6th with 5 TN provided to Africa in in 12-13) The low amount of GIP TN in Africa makes the region highly dependent on Non- African TNs.
  • 18. Africa in Me Report 2013 Inside Africa Africa in Me contribution In its first year, Africa in Me has been mainly focusing on driving more GCDP in the Mauritius and it was a clear success. The lack of focus on GIP is also clearly shown in the 12-13 results. Africa in Me also boosted Non – African cooperation in the region in GCDP. It is either a result of showcasing the stories on the online portal or the partnership proposal or the matching tools provided to these entities. African entities contribution iGCDP Top 3 EP provider in Africa to African TNs are:- • Nigeria (317) • Ghana ( 133) • Kenya (57) Kenya does exchange with 11 African countries which makes it the best African collaborator in Africa. oGCDP Top 3 TN provider in Africa to African EPs are:- • Togo (260) • Ghana ( 52) • Nigeria (35) Despite Nigeria having low amount of iGCDP TNs, Nigeria hosted EPs coming from 11 African countries in 12-13 which shows a high focus in matching African Eps for its TNs. oGIP Top 3 TN provider in Africa to African EPs are:- • Rwanda (6) • Ghana ( 4) • Mozambique (4) • Nigeria (4) Compared to 58 TN provided to African by India in the term 12-13 the figures the amount of GIP TN being provided by African entities look very low. There is a clear need for a shift in focus when raising GIPs.

  • 21. Africa in Me Report 2012 -13 Recommendations General Fifteen African countries are among the top 20 nations which have made the greatest progress toward reaching the MDGs. Most of the African countries are expected to meet four of the eight targets: They will have achieved universal primary education, made strides toward gender equality and pushed forward in the fight against HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria and other diseases. The continent has shown remarkable progress but still lags when it comes to targets like eradicating poverty. (Source:http://www.dw.de/africa-is-on-course-for-2015-development-targets/a-16870832) In the term 13- 14 there will be much focus on going the extra mile to meet the MDG’s. Each entity can support its respective country in achieving these goals and request funding from UNDP to implement these projects or tap in local CSR money with the backing of UNDP. The head of the German NGO Welthungerhilfe, Wolfgang Jamann, "We need an economy that is more focused on job creation, not just profit generation,". The spirit of entrepreneurship is alive and well in Brazil. Luiz Carlos Barboza, technical director of the Brazilian Micro-Enterprise and Small Business Support Service (SEBRAE), reports that the increase of new companies in Brazil is directly related to Brazilians’ growing entrepreneurial spirit. “Currently, small and medium size-enterprises (SMEs) are responsible for 96% of the jobs in Brazil and comprise 98% of all companies in the country.” Finally, 13 out of 100 Brazilian residents are involved in a start-up; and the 2007 Global Entrepreneurship Monitor named Brazil a leading entrepreneurial country. ( Source: http://www.law.illinois.edu/bljournal/post/2013/03/26/Entrepreneurship-in- Brazil.aspx) Brazil is ranked 130th in the list of “Ease of doing Business”. Kenya, Ethiopia, Uganda, Ghana, Botswana, Mauritius, South Africa, and Rwanda are African countries which are ranked before Brazil. Building this spirit of entrepreneurship is what has made the economy of Brazil thrive and this is also what will contribute to eradication of poverty (small and medium size-enterprises (SMEs) are responsible for 96% of the jobs ). It is strongly advised to run projects about entrepreneurship as they are highly susceptible to receive funding from UN bodies and international funds.

  • 22. Africa in Me Report 2013 Recommendations Benin From this extract from the Global Competitiveness Report 2012 – 2013 from the world economic forum you can clearly see how health issues is a major concern in Benin. AIESEC Benin can be driving many health projects as there is a clear need for it. Health Improvement World rank ( out of 144 countries) Another compelling fact about Benin is that enrollment for secondary education is of only 37.1% which ranks Benin 125th out of 144 countries. AIESEC Benin can look more closely to this huge dropout from 93.8% for primary education to 37.1% to secondary education. There can definitely be projects designed around this issue. Benin requires only 6 steps to start a business and is ranked 47th out of 144 countries. It is also to take in consideration that for the prevalence of foreign ownership in the country, Benin is ranked 128th out of 144 countries. From these current information, local entrepreneurs should be approached to be AIESEC partners since AIESEC is also supporting the youth growth. Foreign corporation are definitely less in number and local companies would definitely be interested if you work on the education issue. Facts from: The Global Competitiveness Report 2012- 2013 – World Economic Forum Secondary Education Corporate partnerships
  • 23. Africa in Me Report 2012 -13 Recommendations Botswana From this extract from the Global Competitiveness Report 2012 – 2013 from the world economic forum you can clearly see how health issues is a major concern in Botswana. Botswana has been known for the high prevalence of HIV/AIDS but this extract shows that TB is also an alarming issue. Being ranked 136th out of 144 makes it quite a compelling argument that the issue needs to be tackled and AIESEC Botswana can be driving many health projects as there is a clear need for it. Health Improvement World rank ( out of 144 countries) Tertiary education Financial Market The dropout from secondary education enrollment to tertiary education enrollment is from 87.1% to 7.4%. Botswana is among the richest countries in Africa there is a clear lack of scientist and engineers (the country is ranked 112th out of 144 for availability of scientists and engineers) AIESEC Botswana could develop more projects related to career development perspectives and reach out to the secondary schools. Botswana has a good financial market in place with ease to access to loans along with available venture capital. The country is ranked 35th out of 144 countries with regards to prevalence of foreign ownership. Botswana is also recognized for the remarkable agricultural policy costs. AIESEC Botswana should look into the big agricultural cooperation in the country and provide them with access to the student market. Foreign corporation should also be considered and provide them with interns to work on their marketing strategy. Facts from: The Global Competitiveness Report 2012- 2013 – World Economic Forum
  • 24. Africa in Me Report 2013 Recommendations Burkina Faso From this extract from the Global Competitiveness Report 2012 – 2013 from the world economic forum you can clearly see how health issues is a major concern in Burkina Faso. AIESEC Burkina Faso can be developing projects tackling infant mortality and malaria which are the most critical issues prevailing. There is definitely MDG fund for such project as from these figures Burkina Faso is not on track with regards to meeting the goals in 2015. Health Improvement Another compelling fact about Burkina Faso is that enrollment for primary education is of only 63.2% which ranks Burkina Faso 136th out of 144 countries.

AIESEC Mauritius is already doing projects on diabetes and nutrition which is really good considering they are major issues the country is facing. What is needed from AIESEC Mauritius projects is to be more aggressive when it comes to the impact created and create a brand out of there project. Funding is definitely available for many projects and the innovation is missing in the way the projects are being implemented. This is a great opportunity for AIESEC Mauritius to come with a project which will be recognized nationally. In terms of post-2015 development goals, Odusola says Africa needs to continue to tackle different forms of inequality: Income inequality, gender inequality, inequality between rural and urban centers. Mauritius has mostly achieved its MDG goals and could take the step forward with regards to projects implementation by tacking the different type of inequality. Poverty alleviation can unquestionably be tacked by working on the income inequality. AIESEC Mauritius can also be a pioneer in driving these projects in Africa and be used as a best case practice.

  • 42. Africa in Me Report 2013 Regional Coordinator 13-14 "Africa as a Region has been growing over the years but it has still not been able to demonstrated the massive grow needed to position AIESEC rightly on this continent. I am of the opinion that African countries have not been able to fully capitalize on their unique national positions and have not collaborated well enough to ensure massive growth of the individual countries. As an organization that aims to become 10 times bigger, with just two more years to reach our mid- term ambition, there is a need for change in the way things are done to ensure that this Region contributes adequately to AIESEC 2015. As a president of a top performing entity in Africa, I am aware of the crucial nature of the role of the Regional Coordinator with respect to AIESEC International's focus and strategy for the coming year. Africa as a region has a potential for massive growth and the successful implementation of Africa in Me will enable us to capitalize on our similarities, differences and blooming external resources to ensure massive growth of AIESEC in the Region staying true to the relevance of AIESEC in our dear Region Africa. I am really passionate about seeing this happen and hence my application as the Regional Coordinator. Together we can work hard to make this a reality.
