PATH Capacity Building Training – Day 7


The last morning allowed participants to proceed further with the African networking process. During this session, co-organised with one of the participants, the group split in three groups according to a geographical criterium. The three networking groups were: Eastern Africa, Southern Africa and Western Africa.

During this meeting, each group discuss benchmarks in their regional area and identified the strengths, the weaknesses, the opportunities and the threats.

After identifying the main challenges faced in IVS projects, participants gathered in plenary to discuss gender balance, marketing and visibility, IVS awareness among local communities and youth involvement.



This last afternoon was the occasion to meet Mr Wadboulo, expert in laws and regulations. It was a good opportunity for the group to learn about cultural heritage laws in Uganda, and also to share their own knowledge about their countries.

The last session of this afternoon was the final evaluation of the training evaluation, that was proposed using 4 NFE tools:

  • Silent discussion on flipchart about knowledge that participants would like to bring at home or not
  • Space distribution about different topics (infopack, food, location, contents,…)
  • Sharing feelings about the training through a picture
  • Anonymous questionnaires

The results of this evaluation were positive and prove the involvement of each participant in the training and in the PATH project.

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.
