Kick-off Meeting in Uganda

 Our colleague, Andreea Negoi is these days in Uganda, attending the first event of the KA2 project "Empowering Ugandan youth with EVS". We will share in this post, her experience and pictures from the hosting organisation.

Today was the first day of the transnational kick-off-meeting in Uganda to begin work on the project called "Empowering Ugandan youth with EVS". This project is part of Erasmus KA 2 -  Capacity building in the field of youth.

Together with partners from Turkey (Uçarlı Gençlik Derneğiand) and Spain (Asociación, Cultural Social Educativa Segundas Oportunidades), we are having the first visit to our partner association, Kawempe Youth Development Association, an organisation that works with the street children, orphans and young people, providing them a home and education.

The project is based on volunteering activities, therefore our partner will host volunteers from Romania, Spain, and Turkey, for 3 months. The tasks of the volunteers will be: working with the children, providing workshops, helping to set up systems for growing vegetables, healthy eating, social skills IT skills, vocational skills, and English language skills.

The discussions from today were about accommodation place for volunteers, transportation, and activities which are going to be provided for the volunteers.

The organisations involved will collect donations of clothes, materials, and money to support the local community from Uganda. 

The project is co-financed by Erasmus+ programme, with the support of European Union.
