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. >

Fashion for mothers and children

I’ve set up a business in Senegal making maternity and baby clothing. The advice I got from the Senegalese-German Centre for Jobs, Migration and Reintegration (CSAEM) helped me a lot with this. A business start-up seminar taught me a lot about managing a business, bookkeeping, attracting customers and marketing. I also received financial assistance. The money enabled me to rent a studio and fit it out with furniture, sewing machines and mannequins.
