Press Statement – RELI Convening

Education stakeholders are convening at the KCB Leadership Centre for the 5th Country Convention of the Regional Education Learning Initiative (RELI), a collaborative network of over 70 organizations working on improving learning outcomes in East Africa. Over the last five years, this annual event has provided education stakeholders an opportunity to address educational priority issues by taking stock of progress, achievements, and successes as well as challenges for realizing access to equitable education for the children furthest left behind.

The theme this year is ‘RELI @5: Taking stock to inform the future of Education’. And for the next three days, delegates are set to review the contributions made by the network towards the improvement of education in Kenyan and East Africa, outline education sector priorities, chart the way forward and develop a strategy for the coming years.

The convening draws from a dynamic group of stakeholders including policymakers, civil society, and development partners. It aims to provide an opportunity to engage with one another, share knowledge and good practice, and explore trends and innovative approaches that can be implemented to develop sustainable and inclusive education systems.

The RELI Country convening will be structured around the following themes:Status of Education in Kenya drawing from Lessons learned in the past five years.The status of realization of special needs education in Kenya? And why is it critical that it is prioritized?The status of education policy implementation in Kenya and the challenges still exist when it comes to implementation of education policies.The status of Implementation of the Competency Based Curriculum and the looming crisis of double transition come 2023.The status of TVET in Kenya and its critical role to Youth development and well-being.

For the next three days, we will endeavor to answer the following 5 questions.

  • 1. What is the status of education in Kenya?
  • 2. What is the role of the Kenyan child, parent and teacher and how do we amplify their voices?
  • 3. What are the key concerns that currently exist?
