Author/Publisher: The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF): Regional Office for South Asia (ROSA)
Raka Rashid spoke about the purpose of the workshop: to consolidate the work begun in 2007 by the South Asia Regional UNGEI and pave the way for smooth country-level implementation and continuation of the model. She listed three specific outcomes:
- a review of last year's activities and sharing of experiences
- the preparation of next year's workplan
- a draft outline, based on feedback from participants, for a generic training manual to be developed by the South Asia UNGEI, for adaptation and use at country levels.
Sabita Bhujel hoped that this workshop would help Young Champions do their best to promote girls' education. Daniel Toole concluded with the words of the famous Indian Mahatma Gandhi: Be the change you want to see. "This is your challenge", he said, "To be and build that change: a world where all children go to school."
