Challenging work during the COVID-19 pandemic

In 2020, Mano Europa developed Strategic Partnership project with other European organizations, what is more, we established partnerships with organisations based outside of the European mainland territory.
Active and productive year!
During 2019, Mano Europa has implemented two international Erasmus+ projects and participated in more than 30 international projects abroad. The first project implemented in 2019 was Training Course “Youth Eco-Entrepreneurship: From idea to rural development” aiming to improve youth workers knowledge on the topics, such as eco-entrepreneurship, entrepreneurship, eco-tourism, ecology, rural development. The second activty implemented by Mano Europa was Youth Exchange “I know my rights” aiming to increase young people knowledge and understanding about International Labour Standards on employment and to empower young people in personal development by acquisition of necessary competences. During 2019 Mano Europa established 25 new partnerships with other European organisations and together developed 15 youth projects.
A big breakthrough: First international project approved
This year will be left in our memories due to a fact that our first international Erasmus+ Youth Exchange project “Let’s fight unemployment” was approved and implemented in Lithuania. Youth exchange aimed to support youth by helping them to overcome unemployment and its consequences, through developing young people’s competences and knowledge in the areas of self-awareness, entrepreneurship, healthy behaviors, communication, contributing towards the creation of employment opportunities. An unforgettable youth exchange was full of new knowledge, experiences and long-lasting memories. Next to this we organized local workshops and visited local businesses in pursuit of expanding of our local network.
Since 2017, Mano Europa has been actively involved in local and international (youth) projects and building cooperation bridges between organizations in the European countries. All activities were based on non-formal education, these activities aimed to underline the importance of experiential learning and non-formal education. Since the very beginning, Mano Europa has been actively encouraging young people to meet and interact with other youngsters from European countries, developed a very diverse experience and knowledge in various topics.
