A week ago today, Sedarvp-Ghana in collaboration with their Greek  partners, implemented the Ghana edition of the WE AfriHug 2019 project in Tamale with an Erasmus+ training seminar for 40 Youth workers from various Civil Society Organizations within Tamale. These youth workers were trained on Erasmus+, Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees, EU platforms, Tips & tricks on submitting good proposals, Project management, Pitching and Stakeholders’ communication.

The training took place at the premises of Youth Empowerment for Life and attracted a lot of individuals, youth workers and organizations in Tamale.

The four-day training programme started on May 8th, 2019 and ended on May 11th, 2019 which was climaxed with participants being awarded with certificates.
