About the conference

The RAF Learning Lab is delighted to partner with the SEEP Network as communications partner for the  Global Savings Groups Conference 2018. The conference will offer a platform for attendees to connect, engage and learn from each other about the challenges and opportunities they face in supporting Savings Groups – including VSLAs, SHGs, indigenous savings groups, and other forms of community-based microfinance – worldwide. In this pursuit, the conference will encourage greater use of a wide range of innovative session structures and methodologies that build on emerging and accepted best practices in learning and the dissemination of innovations.

1. Systemic Approaches to Increase Scale, Sustainability, and Impact
