The Rwanda Education NGO Coordination Platform (RENCP) is a gathering of international and local umbrella NGOs active in the education sector in Rwanda. For the Past Financial year June 2010 to June 2011, RENCP secured funding from UNICEF to implement some of the activities on the action plan. We are concluding the financial year in June 2011 and therefore would like to document the best practices and lessons learnt in the first year of operations. This documentation will bring out a concrete report to our partner UNICEF which will be shared widely within the Education sector. The consultancy of 5 days will analyze and elaborate lessons learnt by member organizations in order to reinforce the way of working and inform the strategy for the upcoming years . Â Â Â
