Care and Support for Teaching and Learning (CSTL) is a SADC initiative that responds to the many common education challenges experienced by children and youth in the SADC region including poverty, hunger, poor health and gender-based violence, factors which often prevent many children and youth from accessing quality education.
The meeting will bring together regional partners implementing the unique SADC CSTL initiative. South Africa is the current SADC chair, as such South African Minister of Basic Education, Mrs Angie Motshekga will open the meeting and the Deputy Director-General of Care and Support, Dr Granville Whittle, will chair the three-day meeting.
