The DAIGO Partnership
The Daigo Partnership began in 2019 bringing together University of West England, Bristol, with KORI Youth Charity and Daughters of Africa Foundation in a dynamic new partnership providing a platform for personal and professional development for UWE students and education and skills for African participants.
The Vessel UK Training Programme makes sure that students are fully trained and prepared for their journeys and project delivery in Africa. The Daughters of Africa Foundation, through its team of community leaders, youth leaders and orgnisations on the ground in Africa, are able to ensure students’ comfort, safety and the smooth facilitation of projects and most importantly the recruitment and coordination of invested participants.
