About Youth in One World (YIOW)
YIOW or “Youth in One World – Cooperation Beyond Borders” is a project that will help young people and their organizations to develop sustainable community development projects. The participants will be coming from Germany, the Netherlands, Malaysia, and Indonesia. The cooperating organizations in this project are GREAT Indonesia, PeWoBe gGmbH in Frankfurt (Oder), SOLS 24/7 Malaysia, and Stichting Go Netherlands.
In addition, the chosen topic of this project is cooperation for development and sustainable development. Next, is about how young people can make a difference for development in their own community using entrepreneurship and their own initiative. Besides, the main focus lies on the young people themselves and their initiative. Also, the project wants to support the validation and recognition of non-formal learning and education.
About the Training Course YIOW
Community development plays a major role to help and aid the community to become successful in their life. It is a part of transformation and impactful to the community with the program managed by the government to boost with the involvement of youth workers. Hence, the Training Course on Community Development in Malaysia is pretty uncommon, especially for non-governmental organizations. Furthermore, the Erasmus+ project, YIOW based on the topic training course will take place in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It will take ten (10) days duration for youth workers coming from the partner’s organizations involved in this project. Eventually, this YIOW training can be beneficial and helpful to increase productivity in the organization involved.
Moreover, through this Training Course, the participants will receive first-hand experiences and understanding of their role in community development in Malaysia. It will be hosted at SOLS 247’s premises, SOLS Headquarters at Sungai Besi, Kuala Lumpur. The activities will include community development, project design and management, visiting local project communities and also the impact and sustainable projects which focused on community development in rural and urban areas in Malaysia. Thus now GREAT Indonesia is looking for two youth volunteers to represent the organization in the training course.
