Social responsibility is more than a buzz word for us

Article26 is looking for partner NGOs and NPOs for a joint implementation of professional career development cooperation projects in the African region so that you can be supported.

Article26 is a non-profit initiative from Germany. Our driving force is Maxpert GmbH, an accredited training house in Germany. Education is a human right – and not a privilege. Access to education is not equally distributed around the world. We see this as a problem, and we believe that we have a social responsibility to share our accumulated knowledge in further education.

Our personal sponsoring and partner hall of fame - we'd love to add you here

How to collaborate with us

Our goal is to spur skills development in project, product, and IT service management required for Africa's digital transformation. We are preparing Africa’s Change Makers to contributing to the sustainable economic development within their countries.

We believe that sustainable change can only happen as a collaborative effort.

Article26 is therefore interested in cooperating with government organizations on career development training programmes and that align with

  • Article26’s Mission & Goals
  • Your Country’s National Skills Development & Employment Promotion Strategy

Article26’s exclusive approach includes providing internationally certified eLearnings and competency-based coaching by qualified trainers at no costs. However, we are heavily reliant on governmental organisations’ mission & knowledge as well as their access and resources on the ground.

We believe in developing sustaining approaches on the macro-level through long-lasting and trustworthy partnerships based on agility, transparency and participation.

Partnering with you is our premise of a successful instrument for cooperation.
