Baobabconnections project description

Baobabconnections is a youth project about globalisation for African and
Dutch youth. Baobabconnections is creating an online platform where
conscious youth can share information about globalisation.

Baobabconnections wants to grow into a platform for internet journalism.
We are working hard to make the website a place where people can find
information on globalisation from different perspectives. From Amsterdam
to Cape Town… We have coordinators in 7 African countries; we produce our
own content and publish it directly online. It is good to see that our
online community keeps on growing. We now have 493 subscribed members from
44 countries. And still we feel that this is only the beginning…
