It is a follow-up to the project dubbed EuroAsi: Capacity Building in Youth Work implemented from 2014 to 2016.
The primary goal of the 4Eu&As is to create mobility program among Europe and South East Asian countries by sharing best practices, methodologies, and policies with other countries which are already involved in such programs.
It also aims to implement local projects/initiatives for the benefit of the community.
During the program, youth participants from five countries are expected to join three different training courses and one seminar.
“The project is expected to benefit the more than 2,000 Red Cross Youth members in Boracay and Malay,” according to Rona Liza Inocencio, administrator of the local Red Cross chapter.
Inocencio said that she’s a product of the first mobility and can attest to the professional and personal development it can bring to someone.
She said 4Eu&As will also help foster active youth participation, especially in local development.
“It is of greatest aim to share this opportunity to the youth in the community. We want the youth of Boracay to be involved especially in creating initiatives that will benefit our populace,” she said.
Aside from the training, an online platform for collaboration for youth organizations from Europe and Asia will also be created during the implementation of the project.
This is to ensure long-term partnership among European and Asian organizations, added Inocencio.
