Professionals Engagement: The Program for the Engagement of Professionals from the Diaspora, (EDP) is a program which seeks to bring the experts from diaspora in their homeland with an aim to contribute toward the development of their homeland with their expertise and experiences in development countries. The database of GERMIN coincides with more than 30K professionals around the world. Therefore, based on this “wealth of information and database” GERMIN is implementing the EDP program in Kosovo and Albania. The program brings professionals for a period of time starting from 3 weeks to 6 months with the idea to join Institutions/organizations regarding their needs.
The main goal of this program is to create a network of Albanian diaspora with their homeland professionals by providing opportunities for cooperation and the country’s development chance issues.
Except for the opportunities mentioned, the important part of the program is the closeness between the western culture that symbolizes democracy, with the local one that is in the transition towards democracy.
Internships: Engaging Diaspora Professionals Internship Program provides a unique opportunity for students in Germany in their last year of studies to gain valuable professional experience and build leadership skills. This hands-on program is designed to mentor and cultivate today’s young professionals and prepare them for future both public and private sectors. It is very important that our students in the diaspora have the opportunity to develop their internship in relevant institutions or organizations according to their studies, thus paying attention to their development in character as well as professional and career. Therefore Germin offers this opportunity for students from the diaspora.
Professionals network: We aim to create the largest professional network of Albanian Professionals of Kosovo, Albania, North Macedonia, Montenegro and the south part of Serbia in Germany. Through this network, professionals can connect with one another to foster career development, network building and social enrichment. It will also serve as a base for companies/organizations in the homeland to connect and engage in different projects. It is important to have cooperation between organizations, companies of Albanian diaspora where they are settled, than to create premises of corporations with homeland institutions and other organizations.
