Bremen, August 2018
On 25 August experts in international development, development workers, scientists, entrepreneurs and diplomats – all former colleagues in Laos – got together for a founding ceremony of “BanSenSuk e.V.”.
The association – literally translated as “The village of hundred-thousand-fold happiness” – aims to support young people in LDC and LLDC countries in their occupational development and in paving their way for a self-determined future.
BanSenSuk’s commitment is based on support at three levels:
- Individual mini projects, i.e. support of start-ups, education and training of individuals
- Workshops and trainings, i.e. Design-Thinking or Business-Model-Development workshops
- Cooperation and networks, i.e. support existing activities of partner organizations through capacity building, training of trainers (ToT), studies and evaluations
As a first step, the association will develop pilot measures, firstly by promoting education and training, and secondly by supporting small initiatives. On the basis of experiences gained, concepts will be updated for future programs and projects.
More information can be assessed soon under www.bansensuk.de.
