Following the development of the first four Thematic Subgroups (TSGs), the Family Care First community in Cambodia has recently established two additional TSGs to proactively develop actions with research and learning opportunities to address the needs of Children left behind by Migration (TSG 5) and to promote the benefits of Early Nurturing Care (TSG 6) in the first few years of children’s lives.
Members of the two new TSGs had a series of meetings in May and June to complete the selection of actions after they discussed and prioritized them. Four actions have been proposed by TSG 5 while five actions were outlined by TSG 6. Both action plans will be appraised by a Strategic Review Committee in July and August before the TSGs are invited to co-develop full proposals. Approval of the proposals will be finalized in October so that the implementation of the actions can start in November 2017. It is planned that all actions will be completed in December 2018.
