In the context of globalization, the number of educational cooperation and exchange projects between China and Africa is constantly increasing, and research and analysis based on cooperation and development between China and Africa are becoming increasingly important. In the research on the development of education cooperation between China and Africa under the background of globalization, how to determine the effectiveness of China’s aid practices to Africa is currently a key issue that needs to be urgently addressed. This article conducts a case study through online questionnaire surveys, analyzes the demand for education cooperation projects in China and the demand for education cooperation projects in Africa, and combines the development process of China Africa education cooperation around the 20th century. Based on the data results, the following conclusions are drawn through discussion. In the context of globalization, the number of economic development related training programs and international student training programs in China is the highest, accounting for more than half of all Sino African educational exchange and cooperation projects. In the survey of ten selected international students and university teachers, the highest score was 97 points, the lowest score was 87 points, and the overall average score was 92.6 points. This indicates that China’s aid to Africa has shown effectiveness in practice through educational cooperation in talent cultivation between China and Africa.
