Coalition holds third meeting in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil
24th April 2012
The Coalition held its third meeting in Rio de Janeiro during March 2012. Outcomes included the development of a fundraising strategy, operating procedures, a conceptual framework and membership criteria for full members. The Vision, Mission, Values and Beliefs were also agreed.
Rio de Janeiro was an ideal place to share experiences of delivering programmes for children without parental care. Members visited a residential centre and a community based care setting and shared the similarities and differences with their own projects. A practice exchange on the subject of children’s participation in decision making ensured members left Brazil with a number of ideas to implement in their own programmes.
Going forward, the Coalition will be developing its brand and website, initiating a new monitoring and evaluation system, publishing a number of policy documents and hosting and attending a number of international meetings to advocate for policy change. The Fourth Coalition meeting will be held in London during September 2012.
Preparing for the 3rd Coalition meeting in March 2012
Coalition members ABTH are kindly hosting the next bi-annual meeting that will take place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. This gives the opportunity for both ABTH and Projeto Legal to also host visits to their projects in Rio. One day of the meeting will be devoted to a practice exchange workshop on children’s participation that will be led by Coalition members and will allow Coalition members to identify points of learning and consider the implications for the Alliance standards and for members’ work.
