Follow up on Voyage: Launch of EYMF`s sail Training video!

On the 4th June, we join the European Youth in Migration Forum (EYMF) as they launch their video about the experiences they had on board of the Spirit of Oysterhaven last summer. 

The young people of the group felt like they wanted to thank Safe Haven for the experiences, inparticular of how much they learned about team-work and about themselves during the week-long trip, which took place in August of 2015.  From these experiences came the video, which can be watched on the Safe Haven Ireland Youtube channel.

The launch of the video takes place on board of the Morgenster, in the Dublin River Fest 2016.
