Once finished the workshops, we made two Skype calls with a Senegalese AJSS Association (Association des Jeunes pour la Solidarité et la Sensibilisation). Firstly we introduced ourselves and then talked about the MDG 1, and then about the second MDG2, gender. In the coming months other Skype calls and exchanges are planned.
