Volunteering at FWEAN
Centre for International Migration and Development (CIM) is the human resources placement specialist for German international cooperation, targeting returning experts from Germany to work in their own country. Thus, FWEAN has been supported with a Business Development Centre Coordinator as part of this program. The coordinator is currently working to develop the programs of the Business Development Centre and institutionalizing it.
Besides that FWEAN has also been providing opportunities for interns supported by TPP program to work in various programs of FWEAN. Two interns worked with us in updating data for the MIS, organizing various trainings and workshops for a period of six months. A third volunteer is currently working with us to coordinate the 2nd International Trade Expo, 2017.
