Please join the Moving Minds Alliance and Open Society Foundations (OSF) for an interactive online discussion on the contributions of OSF’s Early Childhood Programme to the field of ECD in emergencies.
As OSF winds down the Early Childhood Programme as a discrete thematic area of work, this 90-minute webinar will feature a presentation of findings from a recent review of OSF’s grantmaking in support of displaced young children and families, plus reflections from several grantees and partners. The review covers the first strategic period of the Refugee & Migration Portfolio, from 2017 to 2020, capturing key learning, the partnerships and relationships that were developed, and how these impacted the work. The webinar will be conducted in English.
