During the project, participants had the opportunity to discuss future partnerships and projects. The design team has also created a website all participants as members to facilitate further discussion, exchange of ideas and cooperation after training. The result of this training also included knowledge that the participants gained during the training. They will use the results using the newly acquired skills and competencies in their organizations and their communities.
