TERRE DES FEMME’s project coordination visited the CHANGE project partner RISK in Sweden to participate in one of the monthly exchange meetings with CHANGE Agents in Stockholm. The meeting provided the opportunity to present recent developments and to discuss current topics surrounding the progress of the project in Sweden.
Ms Fana Habteab, Project Manager and Board Member of RISK, gave a warm welcome and thanked the CHANGE Agents for their dedication and enthusiastic commitment. In the morning session of the meeting, there were possibilities for exchange and feedback from project coordinator Jonna-Lena Seemann and the CHANGE Agents. The session was followed by presentations about the implementation of activities and experiences by CHANGE Agents. They demonstrated great motivation and creativity, whilst drawing valuable conclusions for future behaviour change activities. In the afternoon, RISK’s youth group had performed a short drama concerning the issue of female genital mutilation (FGM).
The visit was an important and reassuring experience for both parties, as it strengthened the relationship between the project partners and provided room for evaluation and exchange.
