AVPN July Webinar: building effective government partnerships to create sustainable system change in education


High impact, NGO-led education interventions are often difficult to scale and sustain if they are not fully embedded into existing systems. Working in partnership with governments offers a clear path forward, but striking the right balance across various roles and responsibilities can be challenging.

They may also be joined by Dr Sarvendra Vikram Bahadur Singh, Director of Basic Education, Government of Uttar Pradesh, who – subject to his availability – will provide a government perspective on working with NGOs.
