Sustainable Agricultural Entrepreneurship for Young Workers in Africa and Europe
Start date: Mar 1, 2015,
End date: Oct 31, 2016
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. In order to promote this objective, AGRO is going to organise 1 transnational seminar, 2 capacity building training courses and 1 e-learning course in order 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 project, in order to achieve its objectives, is going to involve also significant multipliers and stakeholders from the sector of agriculture. The consortium of the project is multi-actor, it has a great experience in the field and it has complementary competencies. It is constituted from 5 partners from 4 countries (Greece, Italy Cameroon and Ghana). 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. The European partners include organisations experts in training related with the sustainable agricultural development, experts in e-learning courses and experts in the field of the organisation of youth related activites. The transnational seminar is going to be organised in Italy and the two capacity building training courses are going to be organised in Ghana and Cameroon. The last training course in Ghana is going to be combined with a final conference. The organisation of an e-learning course will increase significantly both the time that a youth worker could dedicate in the training course and the number of people that will be able to attend the course.
