Training Course "STEP4" in Łódź, Poland

In the framework of the Erasmus+ programme, from 12 to 21 April 2024, the Training Course "STEP4" took place in Łódź, Poland, from 12 April to 21 April 2024. This Training Course was organised by EuroFRC. It was a multifaceted experience that brought together participants of different ages, from different countries and cultures, such as Greece, Croatia, Italy, Burkina Faso, Kenya, China, USA, Lithuania, Spain, Portugal, Poland, Latvia, Slovenia, Morocco, Bulgaria, Romania, Portugal, Poland, Latvia, Slovenia, Morocco, Bulgaria, Spain and Romania. The participants from the Greek team report:


«During the Training Course, we had the opportunity to visit different companies in Poland in order to gain experience and inspiration for creating our own business. During these visits, we had the opportunity to talk to entrepreneurs, to learn about business processes and to get ideas and strategies that we could apply to our own business plan. These visits were crucial for our personal development and understanding of the business environment in Poland.


In addition, we received visits from entrepreneurs who shared their experiences and success stories with us. These visits were valuable as they provided us with direct contact with the business world and gave us inspiration and guidelines for setting up our own business. The entrepreneurs offered us valuable advice on developing business ideas, market analysis and managing the challenges that arise when starting a new business.


We were then divided into groups and each group was tasked with creating a business, depending on the interests of the group participants. Specifically, I and a participant from Kenya set up an NGO for job placement for migrant and abused women. This desire to create a business is an excellent example of collaboration and social entrepreneurship. Creating a job-search NGO for migrant and battered women shows an important commitment to supporting and promoting social justice and equality. Our work will undoubtedly hopefully have a great impact on the lives of many people, offering them opportunities for growth and autonomy. This project has given us the opportunity to harness the diverse skills and experiences of each participant for the common good».
