Pauline Joiris, Project Administrator at Swiss Philanthropy Foundation, went to Venice for the Steering Committee meeting of the Early Childhood Regional Networks Fund. This collaborative fund is hosted by Swiss Philanthropy Foundation and gathers international donor foundations such as Porticus, Oak Foundation, Open Society Foundations, and The Human Safety Net. They join their forces to support the early childhood sector by strengthening regional networks.
In the beautiful headquarters of the Human Safety Net, Piazza San Marco, they had a productive session with the Regional Networks representatives (ISSA, ARNEC, AfECN, ANECD). It was followed by the Steering Committee meeting where the donor foundations had decisive discussions for the fund’s development.
