In the land of a thousand hills, Caroline Nange, our PlayHandall coordinator in Kenya, had the opportunity to attend the Weltwärts conference in Kigali, Rwanda from 7 to 12 May 2023.
Together with Verena Leicht from our German partner organisation ‘Jugend im Ausland’ (KJSH e.v.), Carol met organisations and participants from Rwanda, Uganda, Tanzania and Kenya.
The conference gave each organisation and all participants the platform to present their own projects. In particular, the presentation and discussion of common and different challenges as well as good practices to overcome problems was central to the conference. Last but not least, it is in the nature of such international conferences that exchange and networking for potential future collaborations are a great benefit for all involved.
Overall, Carol looks back on a very successful conference with many new impressions and partners.
