Hands-on Teaching and Training in Technical Professions

The Sub-Saharan Africa region includes 49 of the 54 countries of the African continent. The diversity is high, depending on the level of development, political stability, and cultural environment.

With 60% of the population under the age of 25, employment remains one of the biggest challenges for Africa. It is estimated that by 2030 there will be around 300 million new people in the working age group. In the technical professions, skills are needed that could create jobs, including plumbers, electricians, and mechanics. But skills in technology and innovation are also needed, as many African economies focus on technology-enhanced industrialisation. This challenge is also reflected in the recently renewed German Strategy for Africa. Vocational training has become a key issue.

As a supplier of teaching materials for technical vocational training and our strength in the hands-on teaching and learning, Christiani has been active in the Sub-Saharan region for more than 10 years. We support international projects in different ways, be it by supplying training equipment or teaching material, either in printed form or through a licensing agreement. In Ethiopia, for example, Christiani products were included in the modernisation of several training centers in the field of automotive technology. Another notable initiative by the German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development in the field of renewable energies is the one where one of the Christiani products was selected for training African multipliers on the fundamentals of solar energy.
