For KAAD, the networking of alumni and scholarship holders is an important concern. Not only does networking facilitate reintegration into the society of origin. Rather, it also potentially creates interdisciplinary networks that are particularly well suited to finding answers to the complex questions of development cooperation. This is particularly important in countries with ethnically, religiously, and culturally diverse societies.
That is why we at KAAD are particularly proud of our alumni associations, which are also increasingly networking with each other and thus taking regional and global developments into account.
Für unseren kenianischen Alumnus Dr. Eddy Okoth Odari stand das Gesundheitswesen schon immer im Zentrum von Forschung und Lehre: Er studierte im Bachelorstudium Medizinische Mikrobiologie an der Jomo Kenyatta Universität of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT) in Nairobi.
An alumna has become a partner. Between 2003 and 2007, she completed her doctorate at the Universities of Jena and Regensburg with the support of KAAD. At the end of 2007, she returned to Jakarta and continued her lecturing activities at the Faculty of Psychology of the Catholic University Atma Jaya.
