Testimonials

It was great to have one from Pakistan join at least via Skype. Good to have a mixture of practitioners and academics as well (which could be seen in many of the sessions)
Chathuri Jayasooriya
NATIONAL ADVISER - ADVOCACY (EXTERNAL), SOS CHILDREN?S VILLAGES SRI LANKA

So much to learn and implement from best practice models such as peer support & tuition project
Sandhyaa Mishra
ASSOCIATE DIRECTOR- INDIA PROGRAM, MIRACLE FOUNDATION INDIA

There were a host of very impressive national and internationally guests. We need to present more and more brain research and evidence base surrounding the development of children in large institutional settings. The Continuum of Care should be the next topic and it should focus on convergence (multi-dimensionally and cross-sectorally) and action across all forms of Alt Care for India
Ian Anand Forber Pratt
NATIONAL PROGRAM DIRECTOR, CHILDREN’S EMERGENCY RELIEF INTERNATIONAL (CERI)

All of the presenters were very resourceful and appealing. SOS village model and Maldives and Sri-Lanka’s experience were quite interesting. Experience from different countries on alternative care models was very interesting and I have learnt a lot from their experience. Discussions on care givers problems and recommendations will be effective for policy advice in participating countries. Presenters were very resourceful on their particular subject and clearly delivered subject matter messages
