YEP

The main goal of the Young Expert Programmes (YEP), consisting of YEP Water & YEP Agrofood, is to offer young Dutch and local professionals the opportunity to take their first steps in an international environment. They are employed through Dutch organisations in a number of eligible countries. The programmes aim to rejuvenate the Water & Agrofood sectors and ensure the continued availability of expertise for these sectors.

The YEP Programmes are carried out jointly by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Netherlands Water Partnership (NWP) and the Food & Business Knowledge Platform.

YEP alumni Paul van Essen on 'Wottazela'


Alumni Young Expert Paul van Essen is working on 'Wottazela', a project which offers Ugandan nationals from certain regions the opportunity to voice their opinion on water-related issues through text messages. 

 

The project makes use of radio, a medium which is often used in Uganda, to try to improve the access to clean and safe drinking water. You can find the article (in Dutch), here.
