May 29 2023 • 43 mins

Vera Sompon, founder of Sompon Socialservices Baden-Württemberg e.V. and lecturer at the University of Esslingen, arrived in Germany almost 20 years ago. Her personal encounters with racism fueled her passion to help others.

Now involved in various associations and as a freelance speaker, she empowers the African diaspora through education and community-building. Vera also provides anti-racism trainings and consultations to organizations and government entities. In 2017, she established a non-profit organization in Esslingen and has expanded to a second location in Göppingen, realizing her dream and making a lasting impact on equality and social justice.

Part of the tradition which she brings is through the UBUNTU-Fest. This is a pan African festival, taking place at the Göppingen Bahnhofsplatz. 14.00 - 22.00 Uhr, 09.06. - 11.06.2023


After graduating from her studies in 2019 from the University of Esslingen, she initially began through "Bürgerliche Engagement" volunteering and learning piece by piece by getting people motivated and providing information about the difficulties of the African community. Realizing her passion and vision could not be sustained while holding a regular job, she eventually quit her job to support the organization full time.

Vera is a true powerhouse who believes in collaboration and has joined in developmental work, Chair for Parität, a member of LAKA and speaker of the Forum of Migrants on the national level. With the motto "the message is stronger than any obstacle" she structured the organization according to the legal frameworks to create services. Working hand in hand with for instance the government Job Center. She is now create jobs and have 80 volunteers.
