OCED masthead 

November 2019

Notes from Eduardo 

Eduardo Gonzalez


This month I want to express how thankful I am for the hard work and dedication of the OCED team.  Our programs have been very active as we head towards the end of the year,  from celebrating the graduates of our Parent University program to connecting with rural leadership throughout the country. In this edition, you will also meet a new addition to our team, Jorg Letkemann. 


See you next month,
Eduardo González
