The African-German Youth Office (AGYO) hosts its first event on the African continent. Between 31st October and 3rd November 2022, 20 people will have the opportunity to participate in the Networking Workshop of the AGYO in Accra, Ghana.
***Please note: The application deadline has passed!***
With the African-German Youth Office (AGYO) about to celebrate its first anniversary, so far it has supported 31 exchange projects with youth groups from Germany and 13 African countries as well as 13 international assignments by young people. One of those young people is Rebeca Biira, a head chef from Uganda. She’s currently on assignment at the Konditorei Wippler cake shop in Dresden, in the German state of Saxony, where she met State Minister Barbara Klepsch.
International youth work is one of the many segments facing major challenges two years into the pandemic, as we all know. So the fact that the German Federation for Arts Education and Cultural Learning (BKJ) and its Tanzanian partner held a joint conference to reinvigorate dialogue was all the more important.
Last November, volunteer fireman Julian Schwab became the first Team works! participant from Germany to travel to Kenya on an SES assignment. He spent three weeks working alongside his tandem partner, SES expert Oliver Elsner, to deliver breathing apparatus courses to four different fire stations in Kilifi County and came to realise how valuable a change of perspective is.
From 2022 onwards, new deadlines will apply to all organisations applying to Teams up!: From 01.01.2022 onwards, there will only be three annual application deadlines for project applications. Moreover, the deadlines will no longer be differentiated according to the amount of the funding. All member organisations have been informed by e-mail.
