‘Resilience: From Research to Practice’ Shared Learning Panel 3

We would like to invite you to the third and last Building with Bamboo shared learning panel, Resilience: from Research to Practice. The webinar will take place on 28 March at 15.00 – 16.30 UK time. Building with Bamboo is an international project exploring resilience-based approaches to working with street-connected children who are exposed to sexual abuse and sexual exploitation. The project builds on findings from Oak Foundation’s Bamboo research initiative and is led by Consortium for Street Children (CSC) in collaboration with three organisations from the CSC network. Each organisation is conducting activities to explore the forms a resilience-based approach to working with street-connected children might usefully take.

Resilience: From Research to Practice – Shared Learning Panel 3


In this webinar we will be discussing findings from our partners on the ground including their resilience-based approaches and how we continue to adapt these when working with street-connected children. Our CSC network member CWISH Nepal will be sharing insights from their work with Child Domestic Workers. They will talk about the adaptations they are making to their services and resilience-based approaches and the positive outcomes they have seen for the children they are supporting. We will share what has worked well, what hasn’t worked so well, and the process we went through to get there.

There will be time for discussion and the opportunity to reflect on what the learning means for your own thinking and practice in relation to ‘resilience’ and resilience-based approaches. You are also warmly invited to continue the conversation afterwards on our online Community of Practice and Learning: a space designed to share knowledge and exchange ideas on resilience in street-connected children.

The panel will consist of the Building with Bamboo team: Project Facilitator Dr. Ruth Edmonds from Keep Your Shoes Dirty; and our three CSC network members leading the work in this area, 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.
