Nascent RDO was the local coordinating hub for Bernard van Leer funded programs in Kenya and Uganda in 2009-2011. We facilitated collective learning for 15 partners on three goal areas of Early Learning, Violence against Children as well as Physical Environment. Activities included holding quarterly workshops in both countries, online-based support for partners, technical visits to partner organizations, organizing exchange visits for sharing best practices as well as organizing partner’s participation in international conferences. For example, one of the partners we supported who was implementing a child care project won a prize for innovation in the international ECD conference held in Senegal in 2009.
