Phnom Penh: South-East Asia including Afghanistan was a learning and sharing event to strengthen the national civil society engagement in inclusive and gender-responsive education policy development, implementation, and monitoring.
Education Out Loud (EOL) was the Advocacy and Social accountability funding mechanism of the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) which sought to enhance civil society capacity to engage in education sector planning, policy dialogue, influencing, and monitoring, and to promote transparency and accountability in national and local education policy processes. EOL was the largest fund in the world dedicated to supporting the capacity building of civil society organizations and enhancing their engagement in education policy formulation, implementation, and monitoring. The program was managed by Oxfam IBIS as the grant agent.
The main objective of the workshop was to provide a platform for the grantees to share and learn about project progress, learning, opportunities, and challenges so that areas of collaboration and shared strategies could be explored together.
The participants from each grantee involved in the program management, technical assistance, learning, reporting, and documentation attended the workshop.
The workshop was successfully held at the Cambodiana Hotel, Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
