The International Congress on the Education of the Deaf (ICED) July 2010
EENET seeks to build the capacity of Southern practitioners to participate actively in regional and international education conferences. We want these practitioners to speak for themselves, not just be represented by Northern academics or NGOs. EENET’s Susie Miles and staff from Kentalis International (Netherlands), and CBM (Germany and UK) collaborated to ensure that 28 teachers and audiologists from 16 countries of the South could attend ICED in Vancouver, Canada. This collaboration secured funding for their participation and focused on running a three-day precongress event. Participants got to know each other, had a study visit to services for deaf people, and practised their presentation skills. At the main conference, three symposia and various other presentations by Southern participants showcased the challenges and strengths in their countries.

EENET’s consultancy business (EENET CIC) is going from strength-to-strength. Since launching in January our consultants have carried out work in Armenia, Ethiopia, Liberia, Sierra Leone, South Africa and Tibet, as well as completed desk-based work relating to Bangladesh, Rwanda and Sri Lanka. We’ve done evaluations, situation analyses, training, facilitation, research, writing and more! EENET CIC consultancies deliver a high quality service to NGOs working on inclusive education (with a strong focus on stakeholder participation and sustainability), and provide income for EENET so that we can maintain the website and publish this annual newsletter.
