Participants at the mid term review meeting shared the best practices used in their particular regions and resolved to apply ICT tools in their work after learning from RWECO/CFSU and LACCODEF experiences of the application of ICT in the implementation of activities. Ms. Connie from ELEC-Uganda appreciated the participants as they exhibited the highest cooperation since the meeting did not have a specific facilitator but all the participants contributed to the agenda.

As development partners there was concern to know each other and share information concerning the activities in the Education sector. In her closing remarks, Ms. Connie called upon the partners to map out stakeholders in the Education sector who would be of importance in promoting basic education since it was not possible for the program to provide everything. All together the participants pledged to work with the Government Institutions responsible for Education.
