Nascent to Present at the CIES 2021 Virtual Conference

We’re excited to take part in the CIES 2021 Virtual Conference. The theme, Social Responsibility within Changing Contexts, explores the work we do and how others in the field experience our work in a changing environment with a growing variety of actors who may or may not share the same visions for the future.


On Tuesday, April 27th, our CEO and President, Dr. Beatrice Wamey, and our Food Security and Agriculture Specialist, Ms. Anne Naggayi, as well as Ms. Julie Savane from Rise Against Hunger will be discussing how we can advance social responsibility through school-meals programs by strengthening social capital and building resilience to climate change.


On Thursday, April 29th, our Director of Education, Dr. Truphena Choti, Ms. Norma Toussaint from Counterpart International, and Mr. Bernard Ankiambom Ndi from Catholic Relief Services will be discussing strategies for building community social responsibility and sustaining literacy outcomes in West Africa within the context of COVID-19.
