In the interview with ACI Africa, Ulz disclosed that those who graduated from the T4NA project will also be responsible for national groups in coordinating the initiative’s upcoming project cycle.
The Development Coordinator of the Focolare Movement Eastern Africa also said that those who have financial stability will be called upon to support the incoming students.
The next T4NA project outlines a number of activities, including the plan to establish a Centre of Excellence from where the project will be coordinated.
“For the Centre of Excellence, we are going to form a group of researchers who will deepen, professionally, some of the topics which will be delivered to the students. We’ll also look into having some online exchange meetings on certain topics,” Ulz said.

Those who graduated from the program have expressed a need to continue staying in touch with each other, the official of the Focolare Movement Eastern Africa said, and added, “We welcome them all, intellectuals, researchers, Religious people… everyone will find their place to drive this partnership.”
He informed ACI Africa that the next project cycle will start in September this year with the training of tutors followed by the Summer School of participants who will apply on the initiative’s online platform at www.togetherforanewafrica.org.
The next cycle, the native of Austria said, will be a cycle of three years with participants who will be drawn from 12 countries instead of the previous seven.
Selection of participants will depend on the situation of the pandemic as well as the availability of resources, the official said, and added, “This is an expensive project because we always have to move many young people attending Summer Schools around the continent.”
