Southern Connect

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 process 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’s economic transition in the nineties. Polish entrepreneurs who went through the period of transformation have a lot to offer to 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 an economic but also in a cultural exchange. We believe that in order for a significant shift in Polish-African relations to occur, there must first be a change in perception of this continent. For this reason our work focuses not only on business activities, but we are also eager to participate in and create projects which aim to positively change the way this part of the world is perceived.
