From 24 November to 6 December 2021, 6 representatives of Hawassa University and the Hawassa Polytechnic College visited Switzerland. The objective of this project, which is partially funded by Movetia, was to have an exchange about the Swiss and the Ethiopian education system, to create opportunities for know how transfer and to plan future cooperation.

During the 10 days, the Ethiopian participants visited all of the YEEP partner schools. Furthermore, they participated in events of DEVENTURE, carried out some teaching activities and visited many other interesting institutions. Besides the interesting and eye opening activities, the visit was also a nice cultural experience for everybody. Our Ethiopian guests suffered a little bit from the cold weather, but they enjoyed a lot from the experience of their first snow. After this very intensive week, we are currently planning the next project parts of YEEP-Tech (Hackathon week in Ethiopia) and the future possibility of an even closer cooperation in different areas.

YEEP-Tech is financially supported by Movetia. Movetia promotes exchange, mobility and cooperation within the fields of  education, training and youth work – in Switzerland, Europe and worldwide.
