In August 2018. the Open Society Foundations Early Childhood Programme and the Open Society Initiative for Southern Africa (OSISA) commissioned the development of a series of Learning Stories to capture changes and best practices of 10 organisations working with children with disabilies and special educational needs in Southern Africa. Each organisation was a grantee of the Open Society Early Childhood Programme and OSISA between 2016 and 2018.
