Connecting Europe with Africa, this triangular partnership consists of Nkhotakota Youth Organisation (Malawi), Flora Upper Secondary School (Norway) and Uganda Youth Skills Training Organisation (Uganda). The target group for this project is young people aiming for professional careers as entreprenurs or employees based on their vocational skills. The different activities and initiatives allow youth to gain a comprehensive spectrum of relevant skills for their desired careers. In Malawi, solar energy has been chosen by the partners as a thematic priority in this regard, in connection with social entrepreneurship.
The exchange of staff includes both in-house teachers as well as hired professionals. The selected professionals advise the host country partners on a range of vocational and entrepreneurial skills. They also provide inputs for the curriculum development of the schools. Moreover, specific career-counselling activities have been designed to assist the young women and men to land apprentice contracts. Through the project, young people also improve their ability to actively communicate in English.
