‘Resilience: From Research to Practice’ Shared Learning Panel 2

We are pleased to invite you the second Building with Bamboo shared learning panel, Resilience: from Research to Practice. The webinar will take place on 25th October at 15.00 – 16.30 UK time (14:00-15:30 GMT).  Building with Bamboo is a learning project that aims at exploring resilience-based approaches to working with street-connected children who are exposed to sexual abuse and sexual exploitation. The project is led by CSC in collaboration with three of its member organisations and expands on the learnings from the Oak Foundation’s Bamboo research initiative.

In this shared learning panel we will be expanding on our second learning update, and how we adapted our approach based on emerging learnings from the first Learning and Innovation Cycle.  We will be sharing insights from our learning partner in Ecuador, specifically, main innovations and adaptations to their existing resilience-based approach and its outcome.

Also, what has worked and what hasn’t worked, and how we will be adapting our approach in the third Learning and Innovation Cycle. There will be a particular emphasis on how our learnings and our learning process can inform your own work with street-connected children. There will be time for discussion and the opportunity to continue the conversation afterwards on our online Community of Practice and Learning.

The panel will consist of the Building with Bamboo team: Project Manager Sian Wynne from the Consortium for Street Children; Evaluation Consultant Dr Ruth Edmonds from Keep Your Shoes Dirty; and our three Resilience Champions, Alfred from S.A.L.V.E. International in Uganda, Martha from JUCONI Ecuador, and Krishna from CWISH Nepal.

It is free to register but places are limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-serve basis. To register, please click here.

We invite you to join our Community of Practice and Learning, a space designed to share knowledge and exchange ideas on resilience in street-connected children.
