The event was organised by CaLP, Adeso, WRC, Oxfam and NRC.

CaLP East Africa Members Consultative Discussion

A round table consultative meeting was held on the 27th of February at the ACTED offices in Nairobi. The meeting was arranged to bring together some of CaLP's members in East Africa for a 'roundtable' discussion to consider regional CVA(Cash and Voucher Assistance) priorities. The aim was to start to shape an agenda on which we can work together and which will inform CaLP's plans in EA on the coming year/s.

Communicating about Cash and Voucher Assistance: Workshop for communications staff

On Tuesday 2 October 2018, CaLP convened communications staff from member agencies and beyond across the East Africa region, for a one day learning event in Nairobi.

In the first of its kind, this event aimed to bring together communications experts to understand how, collectively, we can work to overcome the challenges associated with communicating about Cash and Voucher Assistance. By working together in this way, we can present a more evidence-based, authentic and engaging narrative around CVA and increase support amongst donors, governments and the general public.
