4Konstantinos Maragkos represented the H-Ug project in the Youth Exchange programme “Human Rights Here Write Now” organised by the French NGO Concordia, in the framework of the Erasmus+ programme. The programme took place in Le Mans, France from 20th until 29th of April 2017. 31 participants from Greece, Italy, France, Estonia, Spain, Ukraine and Palestine met for 10 days to participate in the programme with the aim to discuss and work on human rights. We would like to warmly thank the French NGO Concordia for the cooperation. The activity included a presentation with the value of voluteerism, presentation of the H-Ug Project and the H-Ug within Balkans. Afterwards, the participants had the chance to watch the documentary “Uganda through our eyes”. Furthermore, the participants tried the local coffee from Uganda “Love and Hope Monde”.
