Since June 2012, IADT have been in discussions with UNESCO and the US Delegation to UNESCO regarding potential collaboration in respect of a number of further deployments. In August 2012, Philip Penny of IADT and representatives of UNESCO undertook a scoping mission to Mozambique, with significant assistance from the Irish Ambassador to Mozambique and Irish Aid. The visit confirmed the immediate relevance, usefulness and usability of School in a Box in a number of settings.
It also allowed us to build some very positive links with corporate entities who are interested in lending their support to the initiative. We hope to be delivering School in a Boxes and the associated training programmes in Mozambique in the near future.
