Once again, the Embassy and the Goethe-Institut Nairobi have chosen a number of Kenyan students who will have the opportunity to attend summer school in Germany from mid August to mid September 2015.

The winners of a German language competition are form three students at Kenyan secondary schools. They will live with host families in Germany and travel to cities such as Cologne, Munich, Berlin and Hamburg in order to familiarise themselves with the cultural life in Germany.

German AMBASSADOR to Kenya Andreas Peschke said: “This is an excellent opportunity for Kenyan students to get to know Germany. We are very happy that so many Kenyans want to learn German. Mutual interest is the basis of friendship between Kenya and Germany.”

The annual programme is funded by the Federal Foreign Office and organised by the Pädagogischer Austauschdienst (PAD), an organisation in Germany working on behalf of the Federal States to promote international exchange and cooperation in the school sector. Every year, four Kenyan students can benefit from the programme together with students from 90 countries.

Germany supports the promotion of German as a foreign language at Kenyan secondary schools within the scope of the “Schools: Partner for the future” initiative by offering training for teachers and donating modern teaching material.
