Southern Connect


The Foundation was inspired by the great potential for development of cooperation between Poland and African countries. Currently many states of the African continent are in the process of significant economic growth that could lead to groundbreaking changes in the position of this part of the world when it comes to international power relations. Unfortunately not enough is being spoken about this matter in Poland and not enough is being done to improve relations with this continent It is our mission to reverse the concept of a „basketcase” Africa, plagued by poverty and despair, we focus instead on promoting and contributing to the continent’s huge potential for development. The economic situation of many African countries nowadays is often compared to Poland in the nineties. Polish entrepreneurs who went through the period of economic transformation have a lot to offer partners from this part of the world, not only in commercial terms, but also when it comes to sharing their unique experience.

We are conscious that this great potential lies not only in economic exchange, but also in terms of cultural exchange. We believe that in order for a significant shift in Polish-African relations to occur, there must first be a change of perception of this continent. For this reason our work not only focuses on business activities, but we are also eager to participate in and create projects with an aim to positively change the way this part of the world is perceived.
