WELCOME TO KIJANI INSTITUTE

Cross-cultural communication, co – learning programs and exchange related programmes are very important as they contribute enormously towards making the world a better place to live in especially in the 21st century. When two or more cultures meet and or interact, they share their life expiriences and these offers learning opportunities for those involved to realize their identities while at the same time appreciating the the identities, cultures and ways of lives of others. This opens the door for recognition of a man as a human being among human beings. We are so excited that Kijani Institute will soon be expanding its horizons to new territories with focus on Africa and Scandinavia as a whole – we hope to be in one new African Country and one new Scandinavian country by winter 2017.
