Our Mission Statement
We facilitate know-how transfer between European experts and African students.
B360 promotes the exchange of knowledge and experience between organizations and specialists in Europe and students, teaching staff and managers from universities in Southern Africa. The objective of our programs is to contribute to the long-term development and stability in these countries and to support an increased understanding between North and South. In this way we help to improve their skills and raise their knowledge levels such that they can improve their own economic and social environment without assistance from abroad.
Young Southern Africans are well equipped with professional expertise and valuable soft skills to find employment or start their own business, actively contributing to the economic and social progress of their home countries.
