A number of NGOs presented their projects during a seminar during which they explained the impact these projects have left on the community. The projects were financed by EU Funds from the programmes Erasmus and the European Solidarity Corps.
The Parliamentary Secretary for EU Funds, Stefan Zrinzo Azzopardi, explained that EU Funds are spread over various sectors and the programmes give youths the possibility of obtaining different experience in Malta as well as in other EU countries.
Dr Zrinzo Azzopardi said that due the pandemic a number of projects had to be temporarily suspended but will now be resumed over the coming months. He said such programmes do not only benefit youths but the community as a whole.
