EVS project in EU (Austria, Finland, Italy, United Kingdom) and Africa (Ghana, Kenya, Mozambique, Nigeria, Uganda, South Africa)
17 long-term volunteer placements from September 2007 to June 2008
The main project aim was to foster intercultural dialogue between youth from European and African Countries. The young volunteers engaged in a variety of local hosting projects, ranging from youth clubs and youth initiated networks to community development and social work projects. The involvement of international volunteers in these projects stimulated intercultural dialogue, as well as promoted volunteerism among the youth in the respective host communities.
