AGRO – Sustainable Agricultural Entrepreneurship for Young Workers in Africa and Europe
The AGRO project is aiming to promote the cooperation between Europe and Africa in the field of youth and explore the potential of youth work in order to increase the employability of the young people in the field of agriculture which represents a great potential for the economies of the Partner Countries. It is funded through the Erasmus+ project (Capacity Building for Youth).
In order to promote this objective, AGRO is organizing the following activities:
– 1 transnational seminar
– 2 capacity building training courses
– 1 e-learning course
The aim of these training activities is to train the youth workers from the Partner Countries in the organisation of non-formal and informal learning activities for the development of the skills of young people related to the exploitation of the community assets and the development of agricultural enterprises.
It is expected that 140 youth workers from all the partner countries are going to be involved in the activities of the project both through the participation in the transnational training events and through their participation in the e-learning course that the project is going to develop.
The main emphasis is going to be given to the youth workers from the Partner Countries (Cameroon and Ghana). 50 youth workers are going to participate from each of the Partner Countries (30 youth workers through the participation in the transnational training events and 20 youth workers through the participation in the e-learning course). These youth workers are then going to implement practically the knowledge obtained through their participation in the training events with their activities with the young people. It is expected that at least 300 young people are going to benefit indirectly from the activities of the project through their youth workers.
The partnership is constituted from 5 partners from 4 countries (Greece, Italy, Cameroon and Ghana). It is coordinated by SVIMED from Italy. The partners from the Partner Countries (Cameroon and Ghana) are youth organisations that are willing to build their capacity to support youth exchanges and also to support the youth in their local community.
