On 31 July, 2017, SEAMEO CELLL had the pleasure to welcome Ms Padmini Iyer and Mr Caine Rolleston, education researchers from the University of Oxford. During the visit, both parties exchanged information concerning SEAMEO, SEAMEO CELLL and the ongoing study of Young Lives.
Young Lives is a University of Oxford-based longitudinal study of child poverty that has been following 12,000 children in Ethiopia, India (in the states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana), Peru and Vietnam for the past 17 years. The study aims to shed light on the drivers and impacts of child poverty, and generate evidence to help policymakers design programmes that make a real difference to poor children and their families. More information on the study can be found at http://younglives.org.uk/
After the presentations, SEAMEO CELLL appreciated the meaningfulness of the study and expressed willingness to provide necessary information assistance. The centre also suggested that the researchers seek additional support from other SEAMEO centres to further benefit the study.
