Euro Guinée e.V.
Verein für Völkerverständigung und Entwicklungshilfe
EuroGuinée e.V. (www.euroguinee.de) , VR No. 3592, was founded in Nuremberg in 2002 by Germans and Africans, most of whom came from Guinea. The purpose of the statutes of the association, which is recognized as a non-profit organization, is on the one hand to develop, promote and maintain friendly relations, in particular between Germany and Guinea, and on the other hand to contribute to the development of Guinea.
As an association for international understanding and development aid, we devote ourselves to integrative activities in Germany, which mainly take place in the metropolitan region of Nuremberg and which are part of the “Nuremberg Initiative for Africa” network founded in 2004, in the founding of which EuroGuinée eV was significantly involved. With the help of a wide variety of campaigns, we want to work together with other associations to straighten out the image of Africa in society (www.nifa-bayern.de).
This initiative has been awarded two integration prizes, the prize of the integration prize from the “Bezirkstag Mittelfranken” (2011) and the Integration Prize of the City of Nuremberg (2012).
EuroGuinée eV is committed to implementing the Millennium Goals at local, national and international level. To this end, project activities are and have been carried out in close cooperation with the following organizations:

In the context of development aid, we implement the concept of “helping people to help themselves” by supporting existing regional non-governmental organizations (NGO) in their locally worked out rural development goals. Thus, our projects experience the full support of the rural population and the municipalities, which contributes to sustainable security. (www.euroguinee.de).
EuroGuinée eV currently has 54 members in Germany, of which around 15 can be described as active members. About 10,000 € are received annually through membership fees and donations.
