The spectacular natural setting of the Wildlife Educational Center in Entebbe, not far from the capital Kampala, was the venue of the PATH Capacity Building Training in Uganda, hosted by UVDA from 25 May to 1 June 2017. The dynamic group of participants from different African countries (plus two representatives from Nepal and the Philippines) took part in several activities focusing on cultural heritage, workcamp management, and gender issues.
Two days of the training were specifically dedicated to interesting visits to cultural sites (Wamala and Kasubi), where the participants had the chance to meet experts and to be engaged in practical activities. Further sessions of the training dealt with impact measurement, organizational capacity and networking. Finally, participants contributed to create a video for the Global Communication Campaign, aimed at providing more visibility to the PATH project.
The training in Uganda was the third event in the framework of the PATH project, after the Stakeholders Forum organized in Paris in February (with the participation of all partners and external stakeholders) and the first Capacity Building Training held in April in Villandraut, France. Now each of the 27 partners involved in the project will implement a PATH workcamp focused on the topic of cultural heritage and diversity. The volunteers taking part in these workcamps will be invited to fill in a questionnaire to measure the impact that their voluntary experience have in their life, and the organization will produce videos to promote their camps.
More information on the training courses and the workcamps can be found on the official PATH blog.
