During her tour in West Africa, Germany’s Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock paid a visit to the Abdou Moumouni University (UAM) in Niamey, Niger, today.
A 55-member delegation, including Niger’s State Secretary of Education, members of Niger’s and Germany’s parliaments, German and African journalists, as well as experts and industry representatives from Germany accompanied the minister, who attended a conference on climate change and security at the Faculty of Sciences and Technology (FAST) of the Abdou Moumouni University.
Professor Rabani Adamou, pro-Vice-Chancellor for Research and International Affairs at Abdou Moumouni and Director of the West African Center for Sustainable Rural Transformation (WAC-SRT) in Niger has coordinated the visit with his team at FAST.
During her visit, different research and capacity building projects such as DAAD Centers of African Excellence (CEGLA, Pro-RUWA and WAC-SRT) and the BMBF-funded project West African Science Service Centre of Climate Change and Adapted Land Use (WASCAL) were introduced.
The Minister also met students of the Climate and Sustainable Development Action’s Club (CSDAC), an initiative of WAC-SRT students and alumni. Geraldo Favi, co-founder of CSDAC and WAC-SRT alumnus, presented CSDAC’s work and actions to the Minister and gave a speech on behalf of the Abdou Moumouni University’s students. In his speech to the minister and audience, Mr. Favi cited Nelson Mandela, South Africa’s late President, whoonce said: “Education is the most powerful weapon which can be used to change the world“. He added that Germany has alsounderstood the value of education and has been investing in Africa’s capacity, especially the youth from West Africa, for years now. As a result of this determined and continuous support from Germany, a lot of progress has been made in terms of knowledge transfer, enhancement of the lectures and students’ capacity, and contribution to scientific knowledge.

The idea to request for sponsorship to purchase sports gears from WASCAL and BMBF by the aforementioned committee for both our volleyball (female team) and football (male team) came as a result of the successes that green Hydrogen students have been registering with no proper sporting gears during competitions organized by our sister schools within Niamey. Some of the competitions include: the AGRHYMET end of year sport tournament, EMIG inter-cultural and sport tournament, and EAMAC socialization drive football tournament. Green Hydrogen students took part in all the above mentioned, and came out victorious in all of them. To share an example of __ ill-prepared we were, our central defender, Saliha Keita, wore a pair of boots from two different manufacturers. The right foot was made by adidas while the left foot was made by puma.
Thanks to WASCAL and BMBF for honoring our request by sponsoring the purchase of our complete set of sport gears both for our female volleyball and male football teams .
So, in order to make these sports equipment official, an inaugural ceremony was organized over a period of two days, from Saturday March 26 to Sunday March 27, 2021 at the School of Mines, Industry and Geology (EMIG), Niamey.
Today, we are proud and highly motivated wearing brand new sport gears to the purpose of on-lookers. Before we were knocking at the doors of our neighboring institutions to borrow jerseys and other sport equipment when we need to take part in competitions, today, such institutions look up to us.
Sports help us develop socially, mentally, physically, and morally, but most importantly, it helps cement a strong cohesion between us and the students of our host country, Niger.
Thank you WASCAL Niger, WASCAL Accra and BMBF.
