«WE AfriHug 2020 – Second stop: Benin»
The next phase of the WEAfriHug implementation was in Benin. We partnered with theSPACE, a start-up incubator located in Fidjrossè, to conduct two successful capacity building seminars at the University of Abomey-Calavi. The initiative was a success with a total of 330 beneficiaries from both pieces of training.
Academic Staff and students received information about WE AfriHug, Erasmus+, Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees (EMJMDs), Proposal writing, and Tips for successful applications. 40 Academic Staff and 250 attended the session. The team also organized a second training on Erasmus+ Opportunities for Civil Society Organizations. 40 NGO representatives and entrepreneurs came together to share their experiences, knowledge, creating links, and networks. Besides, we had sessions on project management, public speaking and pitching, finding trustworthy partners, and how to implement an online crowdfunding campaign.
“WE AfriHug team knows where they are going. They gave the best because they have quality training. They create a good environment for people to learn. It’s the best for me.”, Youssouf RADJ, CSO training participant
