The purpose of the International Workshop is to bring together educators working in poverty education policy, plans and programmes and representatives of other sectors, including health and social welfare, to exchange ideas and explore options for reaching the poorest children with good quality education. It should identify a common core of strategies to be shared among countries and to which they can refer when preparing or implementing their poverty eradication programmes. These strategies will identify steps and change processes needed at the primary level to make it more responsive to the needs of the poor. They will help countries to define more clearly and explicitly the role of education and the needs of children in their national efforts to eradicate poverty.
