The Regional Learning and Linking forum was launched February 2017 when RIATT-ESA and The Southern African Development Community (SADC) co-convened the inaugural Regional Learning and Linking Forum, with the theme Accelerating Delivery of Comprehensive Services for Orphans and Vulnerable Children, and Youth on 9-10 February 2017 in Johannesburg, South Africa.
The Regional Learning and Linking Forum brings together experts from national and regional civil society organizations (CSOs), Development Partners and Member States to share promising practices on delivering services to vulnerable children and adolescents in the region. These forums aim to bring together partners and stakeholders, with influence that operate in Eastern and Southern Africa to:
1. Share experiences, working models and emerging practices in delivering comprehensive services for orphans, vulnerable children and youth;
2. Deliberate and agree on results and time-based partnership, collaboration and joint implementation arrangements in support of national implementation of Minimum Package of Service (MPS); and
3. To build strategic partnerships for accelerating the implementations and delivery of comprehensive services for orphans and vulnerable children, and youth.
