East African Capacity Building Program – Strengthening National Commissions through Regional Cooperation
The German Commission for UNESCO and the Uganda National Commission for UNESCO are pleased to invite you to a short presentation of the East African Capacity Building Program - Strengthening National Commissions through Regional Cooperation, at the occasion of the upcoming General Conference.
In 2008, the German Commission for UNESCO initiated a special partnership program with African National Commissions for UNESCO in order to support UNESCO goals in Sub-Saharan Africa. One of the mainstays of the program are capacity-building measures. In this context, the East African National Commissions from Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda developed their own training program which is tailored specifically to the needs of the National Commissions in East Africa. The initiative is considered a pioneering concept promoting regional networking within the framework of capacity-building activities.
