Youth and Children’s Rights
EVS project in EU and Africa
19 long-term volunteer placements from September 2008 to June 200
The objective of this project was to foster awareness and protection of Children and Youth Rights by involving young volunteers from different African and European countries in projects dealing with youth and children at risk as well as in projects dealing with young people of disadvantaged background / with less opportunities, such as SOS Children villages, child care centers, after school activities, and youth volunteering organizations. Joint preparatory training and final evaluation meetings enabled the group of volunteers to meet and share experiences, as well as to engage in thematic discussions and intercultural dialogue alongside the volunteering experience. This project furthermore fostered exchange of good practice, enhanced networking and capacity building.
