On 23-25 June delegates from Sudan (total of 5 people; 2 UNICEF, 2 University Deans and 1 Government official) went to Uganda on mission to visit the UNICEF Innovation lab. The purpose of the trip was to learn more about the type of innovation projects being piloted, share collaborations, form linkages with one another, and look into how some of the innovations could be scaled up within their own countries and context.
Other delegates from the following MENA countries also took part in the same mission; Tunisia, Egypt, Iraq, Algeria and Libya.
Our trip was jam packed but well thought out since we managed to see and learn a lot of things and there were 15 of us to look after! Day 1 consisted of getting an overview of the different T4D platforms including U-report, EduTrac and mTrac and getting to see the award winning digital drum at a near-by youth centre. Day 2 involved a field trip to see WASH innovations taking place in schools. Day 3 mostly revolved around field monitoring innovations and accountability. We also got to visit the innovation lab in Mbuya.
