PATH Capacity Building Training Uganda – Day 3

MORNING

During the first session of the morning, participants had the opportunity to share their opinions and experiences on project management through an open debate, which included different topics: demanding participants, loosing volunteers, infopack, language, cultural differencies, tehcnical procedures. This activity was beneficial as the group could learn about best practices and solutions to apply to challenging situations.

The last part of this morning session was meant to present the impact measurement process, an important element in the PATH project. This presentation was connected with another related session held in the second part of the training.

 AFTERNOON

The afternoon was divided in two main parts: the study visit in Kampala and the visit of the Uganda Museum in Kampala.

Mr Mugerwa, met again the group during the visit to the site. Thanks to his explanations, participants had the opportunity to learn details about the tombs and their structure. In addition to that, they took part in practical activities with craftsmen working on site. This visit was a concrete way to integrate the presentations of the first day.

After this visit, participants went to the Uganda Museum of Kampala where they explored many different aspects of the Ugandan culture. Thanks to a guided visit, the group learnt further elements of the regional cultural heritage, including traditions and typical stories from the region.

Raising Peace: From Grassroots actions To Global Campaigns Promoting Peace and Human Rights During the last General Assembly in December 2012, CCIVS members decided to closely work together on a campaign to reinforce the recognition and visibility of the contribution of International Voluntary Service to the promotion of a culture of peace and human rights. An analysis of the work carried out on the thematic area of action of Peace & Human Rights so far revealed that several awareness-raising initiatives and training materials on Education for Peace and Human Rights have been developed by CCIVS members, however they haven't been gathered nor made available to all members and other networks. A closer co-operation and a common communication campaign would increase the visibility of IVS organisations and their work on the global level. According to the Plan of Action one specific priority in terms of International Representation and Networking is to increase capacities in the area of advocacy, international representation and to strengthen existing networks. The project, aims to strengthen the role of international voluntary service organisations as key players in the field of Peace and Human Rights Education. Through this project, we will: • Raise awareness on Human Rights and Peace construction all over Europe, promoting peace as the result of the construction of a fair, inclusive, diverse, sustainable and participative society; • Increase the number of trainers with an expertise in Peace and Human Rights Education in our organisations for them to act as multipliers; • Increase the advocacy and international representation skills of the international voluntary service movement in the field of Human Rights.
