FAWE held its 8th Donors’ Coniostium meeting on 26th and 27th February 2010, in Kampala, Uganda.
This meeting provided an opportunity for FAWE’s current and potential donors and partners to review our programme implementation and financial accounts during 2009, as well as our strategic and programmatic work programme for 2010.
FAWE contributors from bilateral and multilateral agencies and foundations participated. Research partners also presented findings from recent work they conducted through a Norad-funded FAWE initiative seeking to strengthen research on gender in education in Africa. Unicef-ESARO presented the Gender Audit approach to assess national education systems, and the Centre for Commonwealth Education shared preliminary findings of a study on factors that keep girls in school against all odds which was piloted at the FAWE Centre of Excellence in Kajiado, Kenya.
