Etymology

What is GERMIN?

The word ‘Germin’ is of Latin origin meaning ‘to grow, to prosper’. The term has been used in many settings throughout its rich background of historical and linguistic contexts,  continuously underlining the importance that change has had in the advancement of societies. Making use of the latter, our organization aims to establish a solid foundation on which Kosova will eventually build its right walls on, for the betterment of the country in particular and its people in general.

Our Approach

We use  a multidimensional approach

We use  a multidimensional approach, and Our aim is to develop programs and initiatives that serve a wider range of the Global Albanian community, promote innovation, and are responsive and able to demonstrate their usefulness to the Global Albanian community.

Germin is run and supported by a group of Diaspora professionals ranging from the field of public policy, finance, information, technology, law, education, security and defense.

We have a wide network of 150 professionals and part-time collaborators, currently residing in 24 countries including the Balkans, Western Europe, and North America.  Germin also has a network of 250 partner organizations in the Diaspora, including Europe, United States, Canada, Asia, and Australia.

Testimonial

Increasingly countries are coming to realise that their Diasporas are no longer ‘lost actors’ but ‘national assets’.

Technology and communications mean that people are connecting globally more than ever and it is now more important what you do than where you are. Key to developing the potential of Diasporas is to be able to answer the following questions – who are they, where are they and what are they doing?  To develop this ‘Diaspora Capital’ organisations need to be established who understand this potential and can put in place programmes and projects to develop it. Germin in Kosovo is a really good example of such an organisation who are perfectly placed to turn brain drain into brain gain and brain exchange. Made up of talented and passionate professionals who have researched the potential and identified key Kosovans overseas they have put in place the building blocks and structures to convert sentiment and goodwill into practical projects which will benefit their homeland. Germin have identified global best practice in Diaspora engagement and  can become one of the leaders in this field.
