MORE ABOUT PROJECT:
Firstly, the NGO “PRIMA” and the whole project team welcome you to take part in the third Mobility activity of our SARH project, approved by EACEA in the frame of Erasmus+ Youth in Action program Western Balkan Window, officially started at 1. July 2017.
In this project we are working on beating prejudices regarding sexuality and reproduction thanks to sharing scientific information and point of view and opening all those issues that are, more or less, in all our societies connected with shame, fear, feeling of guilty, shortly said – taboos. Trainings and study visit which we will attend are here to raise our capacities and competences to fight against these taboos in work with, in fists place, young people.
Realized Mobility activities were: trainings in Montenegro (December 2017.) and in Spain (February/March 2018.). Now we are looking forward to organize training again in Montenegro (May) as well as study visit in Germany (September). Capacity building activities will be: web site, brochure, local trainings for peer educators, round table and workshops.
We hope that you are looking forward to our next training as much as we do!
In the following pages of this document you will find basic information about the third training, suggestions on how to prepare for it, information on the venue and how to get there, contact details and other useful links.
Preferably, we would like to meet youth workers and youth activists as participants, who will stay in the project during the process and share knowledge gained here to your local beneficiaries.
This training is third mobility activity in SARH project. It has two basic aims:
- To gather 30 youth workers and activists from 15 countries to raise their capacities in the field of sexual violence and sexual rights;
- To share one of our values, which is love, as starting point to observe the world because we strongly believe that people educated to love cannot be easy target to those who wish to manipulate with them.
Each partner organization is expected to delegate 2 persons for this training and we prefer those who are active in organization as youth workers or activists. This is because we need people who will be responsible to organize local trainings for volunteers and workshops in local/national level. Also, we need persons with solid/good knowledge of English, older then 18. Take care, if possible, of sending participants of both sexes. People of all genders are welcomed. Unfortunately, hotel isn’t equipped with elevator and platforms so it’s not proper for persons in wheelchair.
