Missing Child Kenya partnered with YALI RLC E.A Cohort 33 Public Management participants for a design challenge. This was a great opportunity for us to collaborate with very brilliant minds across the East African region in finding more innovative ways in boosting search efforts for missing children in Kenya; and also an invaluable opportunity for the participants to learn and gain insights into the child protection sector.
The YALI Cohort 33 Public Management participants actively engaged in designing solutions that met the design challenge requirements; and we were excited about the learning and consultative process.
The design solution presentations took place on Thursday 27th June 2019 at The YALI East Africa Regional Centre located in Kenyatta University, Chandaria Building.
Course facilitators Heidi Mumia and Loise Mboo spoke on behalf of the class and shared: ‘This was such a noble challenge which not only educated us on matters Child protection but also got us an opportunity to shape conversation around missing children.’
Encouraging academic and research cooperation among various institutions makes the team network approach more effective in sharing knowledge, resources and innovations. Educational institutions that subscribe to a partnership approach have better relations with industries, local businesses and local communities.
Thank you YALI RLC E.A Cohort 33 Public Management participants for powering through the presentations and the valuable feedback and propositions from the design challenge that enriched the learning process while greatly benefiting Missing Child Kenya with ideas that will be implemented.
