The eight day programme, designed to inform the development of the Active Citizens’ social action projects, was full of community visits, workshops and activities in and around Exeter. It ended with an event at the Wonford Community Centre that included speeches, Ethiopian and ceilidh dancing, curry and a traditional Ethiopian coffee ceremony.
The trip followed a visit by the Exeter Active Citizens to Ethiopia in March, and both trips have provided a great insight into how the Active Citizens can implement voluntary projects in the community.
Sarah Prior Partnership Administrator at Exeter CVS said:
“Active Citizens from both countries learnt a great deal and will keep in touch as social action projects develop.”
