Achieved Results

Results achieved at the end of the project (March 2014) include: The interns assisted the local partners by: 1) leading a project in Senegal on the onion transformation through a drying process thus allowing a comparative analysis with currently used transformation processes and propose new conservation methods; and 2) in Gabon, by providing local organisations with teaching material for training in the areas of medical biology, special needs education and early childhood education. The interns acquired new skills and abilities that will increase their employability such as: the interns’ contribution on Monitoring and Evaluation has enhanced their capacity to adapt and implement M&E systems in their projects through the incorporation of up-to-date techniques and methodologies.
