Meet Femma, a dedicated Host Entrepreneur from the Netherlands and the owner of SIVMO, an organization committed to raising awareness about human rights violations. Femma is passionate about promoting human rights and justice for all, and she has been actively involved in this cause for a very long time.

Dania, a driven human rights advocate pursuing a master’s degree in Human Rights and International Relations, joined Femma in the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs program. Dania shares Femma's determination to fight against all forms of racism and is eager to contribute to the cause. As a result, the two entrepreneurs decided to cooperate under the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs program.

Throughout the exchange, Femma provided Dania with access to valuable resources related to human rights. Dania had the opportunity to study communication advocacy and fundraising strategies, gaining insights into how these concepts are applied in practice. She immersed herself in a thriving human rights environment, observing and learning how to create effective advocacy strategies. With Femma's guidance and support, Dania developed essential know-how in communication advocacy and the management of human rights initiatives.

Overall, Dania played a crucial role in organizing advocacy campaigns with partners, drafting legal case summaries, and preparing social media toolkits. She also honed her writing and editing skills, drafting engaging press releases. During the EYE business cooperation, Dania expanded her network, reaching out to academics, journalists, and relevant NGOs. She also learned to use creative communication tools and to prepare compelling communication materials.

The exchange proved to be transformative for both Femma and Dania. For Dania, it was a period of tremendous growth and development. With Femma's support, Dania developed problem-solving skills necessary to overcome challenges in implementing communication and advocacy strategies, and her expertise in carrying out public campaigns flourished. As a result of the exchange, Dania's networking skills also flourished as she engaged with individuals and organizations in the human rights domain.

The EYE programme was instrumental in fostering an impactful collaboration between Femma and Dania. Femma's organization benefited from Dania's fresh perspective, creativity, and commitment to human rights advocacy, while Dania gained valuable knowledge, skills, and a network of like-minded human rights professionals. The success story of Femma and Dania exemplifies the program's capacity to facilitate meaningful knowledge exchange, mutual growth, and positive impact in the field of human rights.
