EU, Africa and Asia EVS Project: “YOUTH PLUS AWARENESS”

EVS project in EU (Austria, Estonia, Italy, Lithuania, Poland, Sweden and UK), Africa (Ghana, Kenya, Mozambique, Nigeria, South Africa and Uganda) and Asia (India, Nepal and Vietnam)

16 long-term volunteer placements from May 2008 to August 2008

This project aimed at promoting trans-national volunteer exchange programmes and practical training experiences in EU, African and Asian countries, and enabling specialized HIV/AIDS NGO’s to work alongside with youth voluntary service organisations in the field of HIV and AIDS education, prevention and care. The project’s activities entailed an exchange of youth workers from youth voluntary service and HIV/AIDS NGO’s. This fostered the transfer of know-how regarding trans-national voluntary service programmes and HIV/AIDS prevention work as well as partnership-building between youth and voluntary service NGO`S and HIV/AIDS projects in European, African and Asian countries
