About the volunteering opportunity

Project: Building and launching the ethical pan-African cooperative Maat Cooperative Africa (MacoopA). MacoopA is a cooperative for African people, people of African origin and allies of Africa in general. MacoopA aims to activate the entrepreneurial potential of people of African origin in Africa and the African Diaspora in Europe, and to encourage them to start businesses in the field in which they see their talent and/or have gained experience.

What is special about this project is that it is about ethical entrepreneurship in the sense of a socio-ecological orientation (common good economy). With the current challenges on the planet, we cannot only demand socio-ecological responsibility from the big companies. Every entrepreneur, no matter if big or small, needs a method and instruments that help him to meet this responsibility. Thus, in Africa and in Europe, a cosmos of socio-ecologically committed companies from all sectors is to be created, a network within which solidarity, cooperation and joint success. 

The following services are to be made available to the enterprises:

- Financial services;

- Crowdfunding;

- Educational formats and coaching;

- An online market.
