IMG_0223The last day of the f2f meeting is dedicated to the way forward. Peter Beez presents the work plan of the e+i network for the years to come. The network’s mission is to improve the quality of our projects in order to enable systemic change and finally create income and employment for poor, disadvantaged and excluded populations. E-discussions are one key instrument of collaboration within the network. To maximize our outreach we are also involved in international networks such as BEAMexchange, DCED, DC dVET, CGAP, and the Microinsurance Network. If you need any kind of professional support, just contact the backstopping team contracted by the e+i network.
