Insights into our work

Beratungssituation

"There are a lot of job opportunities in Senegal"

Many people want to return, although the political or economic instability in their home country puts them off. Yet there are lots of success stories: returnees often find market niches when investigating business ideas.

Returning to Senegal well prepared

Going back home is not always easy. Spending time abroad changes people. And their country of origin will have changed too. There is a new guidebook on reintegration that provides lots of information for Senegalese nationals. It contains useful tips on the best ways to prepare for going back home from Germany.  

You can find the guide here. >

Our Podcast

The Senegalese-German Centre for Jobs, Migration and Reintegration (CSAEM) Podcast provides information and advice on employment and training opportunities in Senegal, on support services for returnees and on regular migration to Germany.
