The Global Savings Groups Conference is a biennial event that engages a large and diverse community of stakeholders, develops and promotes improved standards of practice, mobilizes knowledge, strengthens partnerships and alliances, and creates opportunities for cross-organizational learning. Each event in this series has also served as a catalyst to increase the scale, sustainability and impact of Savings Groups in the host country – and region. SG2015, in Zambia, was the third event in the series and engaged close to 400 participants representing 147 organizations from 44 countries.
The SEEP Network is delighted to host the 2018 Global Savings Groups Conference in Rwanda, in collaboration with Conference partners. Together, we will offer a platform for attendees to connect, engage and learn from each other about the challenges and opportunities they face in supporting Savings Groups worldwide. In this pursuit, we encourage greater use of a wide range of innovative session structures and methodologies that build on emerging and accepted best practices in learning and the dissemination of innovations.
All SG practitioners are invited to organize a session and provide thought leadership on critical issues that impact our work. Submit a proposal for one of the dynamic peer learning sessions across the four conference tracks by November 10. The SEEP Network is delighted to accept proposals in English, French, and Spanish. | La Red SEEP está encantada de aceptar propuestas en inglés, francés y español. | Le réseau SEEP est ravi d'accepter les propositions en anglais, français et espagnol.
