Together We Grow

SAGE Net stands for South African German Network. As a non-profit organisation, based in Berlin and Cape Town, we are committed to intercultural exchange and long-term cooperation between South Africa and Germany.

As a network, we offer a platform for different cooperations and long-term partnerships. In the foreground is the weltwärts volunteer service, which we offer for South Africans as well as Germans.

Since 2004 our association has been in existence, sending young people to Germany and South Africa every year. We are all united by our love for intercultural experiences and diversity, as well as both countries.

Intercultural communication is enormously important for our future!

South Africa, land of dreams for many. The rainbow nation full of sometimes seemingly insurmountable contrasts. contradictions. The most impressive experience for me is the insight into the complexity of the UBUNTU concept.
