It was a really wonderful event. I got to hear from an excellent selection of super-inspiring speakers, and had lots of great conversations with other participants.

Communities of Practice
Communities of practice bring program participants, partners, alumni and staff together in online communities around a common area of interest. This unique shared learning environment sees members engage in discussion forums, share information, tools and resources and collaborate to strengthen capacity and explore best practice.
We have active ‘Education and Learning’ and ‘Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning’ communities, and are inviting expressions of interest in ‘Grant writing and fundraising’ and ‘LGBTQI+ / Diverse SOGIESC’.
Please get in touch to get involved: email@example.com
