Idea Studio Nepal (ISN) with the National Union of Eritrean Youth and Students (NUEYS) are working together to launch Idea Studio model in Eritrea. Rupesh Krishna Shrestha, Director and Co-Founder of Idea Studio Nepal visited Eritrea in the beginning of 2019 to present the Idea Studio model to the government officials of Eritrea and get their buy in into the model. The second trip was to run a five days workshop on the Idea Studio curriculum. In this regard a team from NUEYS and the government officials of Eritrea visited ISN for a week to learn its operations. The aim was to provide experience and insight of ISN concept to the Eritrea team.
The main objective of the visit was to understand the initiation, operationalization and sustainability of the ISN and provide an insight into the management and resources requirement to launch Idea Studio Eritrea.
The outcome of the visit will guide NUEYS to operationalize Idea Studio Eritrea, to engage youth and nurture and strengthen their creativity. Further, it will have a significant impact in their creative thinking, exploring livelihood opportunities, strengthening entrepreneurship and informed engagement in Eritrea’s socio-economic development by engaging and mobilizing youth.
