NEW YORK, NY, 8 August 2006 - The ‘Child-Friendly Schools (CFS) for Africa’ Second Annual Capacity Building Workshop will be held in Maputo, Mozambique from 21-24 August 2006 with government counterparts, UNICEF officers and other partners attending. This multi-year initiative has emerged from a partnership between the Nelson Mandela Foundation (NMF), the Hamburg Society and UNICEF to support the accelerated promotion of quality education for all children in six African countries, including Angola, Malawi, Mozambique, Rwanda, South Africa and Zimbabwe.
The anticipated end result of the workshop is effective planning, implementation and monitoring of the rights-based and gender-sensitive CFS programme, especially for girls, orphans and vulnerable children in sub-Saharan Africa. The partners will also have an Annual Steering Committee Meeting of the programme and discuss the way forward.
