A three-week educational journey around Africa with SberbankForward!
Young Global Pioneers is an educational programme for engineering students who want to explore the world and are willing to change it for the better.
Take your mind off routine tasks for three weeks and embark on an unforgettable journey around Africa.
You are in for a tour around vibrant Tanzania and trips to the fabled Sahara and the mysterious island of Zanzibar. You will feel the mind-boggling contrasts of this continent: while coral reefs off the coast of Zanzibar are threatened by global warming, the scorching sun of Tanzania makes local farming a daunting challenge.
It is only by seeing different sides of Africa that you can understand its culture and form your own opinion.
You will be exploring the region’s most pressing issues in the company of the world’s most talented students, exchanging ideas and inspiring one another.
Sberbank’s special grant covers all project participation expenses and associated travelling costs (visa, aeroplane tickets, accommodation, food, insurance, vaccination, etc.). In addition to the breathtaking journey, the winner will get the opportunity of employment and future professional growth at Sberbank.
