AFSers from around Africa (and further afield) take a well-earned break

From 6th July to 9th July, AFS in Africa (AiA) held its regional meeting in Tunis. The meeting brought together staff, volunteers and board members from Egypt, Ghana, Kenya, South Africa and Tunisia for a range of activities. The meeting was also attended and supported by AFS International and Intercultura (AFS Italy).

The highlights of the Friday were a Global Citizenship Education Forum and a Workshop for Teachers.

Saturday and Sunday was made up of a Fundraising Training – facilitated by AFS Italy and AFS International, plus planning sessions for AiA operations for the rest of 2017 (including the upcoming Network Meeting to be held in Ghana).

All participants were full of praise for the welcome given to them by all involved in AFS Tunisia and a number have started making plans to return!
