On January 17th WE AfriHug implemented the training seminar at Kenyatta University students & Academic staff at Nairobi in Kenya.

The training event was launched with welcome traditional African dances from the students of the Department of Music and Dance.

The presentations of the opportunities to study abroad through the programme Erasmus+ and the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees started at 9.00 a.m.

Almost 450 people attended the training seminar.. WE AfriHug team and the members of the Erasmus Mundus Association made interactive presentations engaging the audience and explaining in detail the opportunities offered.

In the afternoon, another meeting was held in which WE AfriHug team, Erasmus Mundus Association members, Board of the School of Hospitality and Tourism Management and the Head of Press and Information of the EU Delegation in Kenya discussed about Erasmus+ and future cooperations with European Universities.

Special thanks to Titus Suter, former Country Representative for Kenya for the Erasmus Mundus Association and Moses Ochieng, who contributed to the event by sharing testimonials of their previous experiences with EMJMD and motivated hundreds of students to apply.

Warmly thanks to Lina W. Mkoji, Erasmus Mundus Association Coordinator of Eastern Africa and ambassador of WE AfriHug in Kenya who organized an excellent event.

 

From January the 19th to 21st WE AfriHug Team and our Kenyan partner “Resource Hub for Development (R.HD) – Kenya” worked with the students of the Nyamasaria Secondary School on the development of significant soft skills, which are needed for our century.

The aim of the Training Seminar was to empower Youth with skills needed for 21st century. Communication, Collaboration, Critical thinking, Innovation, Problem Solving, Social and Cross-cultural skills were the ones to be transmitted to the students through all the non-formal education activities.

50 students actively participated in these 3 days, learnt how to work in teams and collaborate, how to solve problems and overcame obstacles. Students challenged themselves and came up with new ideas discovering their internal power.

 

Now the team moves to Uganda where it will carry out a meeting at Kyambogo University and 3-days camp for students from the village of Monde.
