The Global Transformation and Social Work Practice is a partnership under DAAD, a German academic exchange organisation. The partnership is made up of four universities – Fachhochshule Dortmund, University of Johannesburg (through SARChI Welfare and Social Development Interim Chair Prof Tanusha Raniga), University of KwaZulu-Natal and Midland State University. The projects aim is to deepen the partnership of the universities in the area of applied social sciences as well as to establish an identical course module. This should contain issues and topics that heighten the international importance of the lecture and should expand the students‘ and lecturers‘ competencies in the areas of research, practice and performance. Moreover, an international competence network is to be established between NGOs, universities and enterprises.

The four-year programme aims to build Sustainable Development Goal partnerships between countries of the “Global North” and the “Global South”.
