The Hamburger Initiative für Menschenrechte (HIM) honours innovative projects, this year under the slogan Project in Africa – Alternatives to Migration. We are proud to announce that PROJECT-E has been awarded as one of two African projects in the ceremony on April 4 2017 in Hamburg, Germany.
After Germany and Austria, Switzerland just became the third country, in which PROJECT-E is registered as an association.
Our students got to visit the Castel Winery in Ziway in January to learn about growing of grapes and wine making. They were accompanied by our volunteer Iga, who captured the trip in photographs and words.
On the first weekend of the year, the PROJECT-E team came together in Vienna, Austria to kick off the year by evaluating ongoing work, making new plans and meeting old and new team members and friends.
It’s getting more and more international at the Hospitality Institute: During the summer break our teachers and staff refreshed their French skills with one of our volunteers so they are well prepared to teach the 2nd year students the second teaching language from October on.
We are proud to present an insight into our fruitful cooperation with the well-known student organisation AIESEC which is sending volunteers for our project on a regular basis.
Last weekend the European team of PROJECT-E came together for the second strategy weekend of 2016. Check out our latest post for more information about the different workshops, the plans that were made and the importance of this weekend for internal team building.
The year started out with the 12th strategy weekend of Team Europe in Vienna – plans have been made, events planned and the team has become an even closer one!
