  • Civil society capacities, participation and strategic influence in formal education policy processes have increased in selected countries, whereby E-Net intensifies its campaign and advocacy to address the need of the marginalized groups for safe, inclusive, equitable and quality education, by engaging member organizations and empowering them to produce their evidence-based policy papers and advocacy strategies and influence local policy and decision makers.
