Capacity Building Program (CBP)

The EADBC seeks to continue on the path of nurturing individual and institutional potential to impact regional economics through the CBP platform. The CBP affords more Eastern Africans the opportunity to contribute to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics and other key areas. With the help of our strategic partners, we seek to expose Diaspora students to internships and work experience and capacity-building opportunities. This will in turn enable our graduates to return to the region better equipped with important professional and management skills and relevant experience to work in the very competitive multinational corporate environment. 

Good practice must of necessity be enabled by means of cooperation with EAC R&D institutions, bilateral research visits, joint conferences, special discussion groups, short term and long term consulting engagements in joint studies and plans for strategic infrastructure, practices, and policies.

Additionally, EADBC promotes opportunities for showcasing Diaspora entrepreneurship by creating networking opportunities among business leaders and forging strategic institutional partnerships in knowledge-intensive sectors to foster long-term economic growth in Eastern Africa countries.
