During the first training day, the team interacted with almost 40 Board members of the University of Dar es Salaam, presenting Erasmus+ and raising the awareness on mobility opportunities between European and African Universities. During the second training day “Erasmus+: Open your mind, Change your life” the team interacted with more than 250 University students & Academic Staff through dynamic and interactive presentations but also through a “live library”, the WE AfriHug team raised the awareness on Erasmus+ opportunities. The audience had the chance to get informed in detail about the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees, the procedures and applications and also tips have been given to the students who would like to get involved in the future.
