Capacity Building Workshop for Librarians and American

In partnership with the local Librarians Association and the Ministry of Education, U.S. Embassy Abidjan organized a workshop for American Corners and American Shelves coordinators as well as the partner schools and institutions that form the Nouveaux Horizons Network in Côte d’Ivoire.

The workshop reinforced the participants’ capacity with regard to programming and project management. It also focused on highlighting available IIP resources and the ARS Nouveaux-Horizons books used in Post programs such as “La Parole aux ADOs,” “Graine de Leaders,” and the “Book of the Month.” All of these initiatives are designed to support education, literacy, and youth empowerment.

This workshop supports the Mission goals of enhancing Côte d’ Ivoire’s human capacity through improved education, increased literacy, and outreach to youth, and under-served groups.
