Kick-off workshop of HealthyDiets4Africa Project

Our kick-off workshop took place from March 20-24th, 2023 in a quiet, tranquil, and beautiful castle in Rauischolzhausen, Giessen, Germany. Over 50 participants (including universities, research institutions, international organizations, development organizations and non-governmental organizations) from 12 different African countries and 8 European countries attended this great workshop to share ideas. It was wonderful to meet great, friendly, and loving experts from Africa and Europe. The workshop was an unforgettable experience for us.
