RTEI Community of Practice PresentationsNov. 20, 2017
We are pleased to announce the first RTEI Community of Practice presentations!
In 2017, RESULTS Educational Fund supported five national civil society organizations partnered with the Right to Education Index (RTEI) to conduct advocacy campaigns based on their 2016 findings. Three of those partners will present the main issues around the right to education in their countries and the outcomes from the advocacy strategies they implemented to address these issues.
