PARAGUAY – Scoping Mission
Partner Organization: Fundación Saraki
Fundación Saraki requested 2 days of technical support from Catalyst for Inclusive Education for their initiative “Developing an Inclusive Education Model in Paraguay”. Catalyst undertook an analysis of the current landscape of education in Paraguay as well as the various stakeholders and key actors involved. In May 2017, members of the global and regional response team travelled to Paraguay for a scoping mission. A scoping mission is an analysis that helps Catalyst determine how we can best support our member to make change. As part of our scoping missions, Catalyst makes recommendations to the member on how to move forward and who should be involved.
The Paraguay scoping mission included meetings with stakeholders and key actors, school visits, and a feedback session on the final day with Catalyst’s preliminary recommendations. With Saraki, the Catalyst team also undertook a variety of school visits (public and private schools, regular and special schools), met with parents, and attended a workshop that featured Saraki’s education initiative.
Catalyst continues to work with Fundación Saraki on the development of a plan that includes measurable indicators of success as Paraguay moves forward in transforming their education system.
