Link's Global News
Link’s approach to school improvement received recognition in Westminster this week when it was cited as a key example of how 'participatory governance' can improve the quality of education in developing countries.
We are very sad to inform you that Perran Penrose, the Founding Chair of Link Community Development, passed away in Cornwall on Tuesday 6 November 2012 at the age of 65.
Frances Hillier is a former Link Global Teacher and staff member who worked for us in Malawi. In 2004, she embarked on a truly unique and personal fundraising challenge, setting out to walk the famous Christian pilgrimage route known as the Camino Francés.
Over a period of eight years, Frances has walked over 1,500km on several visits, from Central France, over the Pyrenees and to the town of Santiago de Compostela in northern Spain. From tricky mountain ascents to scorching sun, it has been a truly remarkable adventure.
The Development Education Research Centre at the Institute of Education, University of London, in partnership with Link Community Development, held a major one day international conference on Friday 23rd November 2012. The conference aimed to explore the impact of linking, celebrate its achievements and look critically to the future.
