SAAM (Supporting Alliance for African Mobility)

SAAM (Supporting Alliance for African Mobility) is a pilot action of educational mobility in the field of vocational education and training to allow the establishment of mechanisms of implicit exchanges through learning, teaching and capacity building between Africa and Europe.
SAAM is a strong international community to pilot action of educational mobility between vocational training entities connecting Africa and Europe. SAAM takes advantage of a very powerful partnership between the two continents, in order to have a relevant impact among teachers and students of vocational training, who are its main target group. SAAM manages to bring together 19 European partners from 8 countries (Spain, Portugal, France, Belgium, Italy, Greece, Germany and Finland), and 16 African partners representing 17 countries (Angola, Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Cape Verde, Chad, Côte d'Ivoire, Eritrea, Kenya, Liberia, Malawi, Mali, Nigeria, Senegal, Sudan, Tunisia,). Thanks to the variety of organizations that gather professional training centres, non-formal training organizations, congregations and educational networks, NGOs that work in the training for young people and umbrella European organizations, SAAM impacts on the whole world of education and in the field of youth employment.
SAAM project will last 40 months, starting in January 2020 and it is divided into three phases with three different mobility flows. AKMI S.A. is responsible as a co-leader in the Quality Assurance of SAAM project and will have an active role in the mobilities as a hosting and sending organisation.
