Mutual Learning

One of MCC’s core values is “mutual learning.”  This means that we do our best to share our experiences and expertise with one another and our partners – while also learning from the unique assets and knowledge of our partners and the communities they serve.  We believe that a stronger program and lasting impact happen through our collective learning.

One of the ways MCC promotes mutual learning is through Learning Tours, through which MCC constituents are invited to learn directly from our partners.  Recently, we had the opportunity to host a Learning Tour of participants from MCC Alberta (Canada).  They were able to listen to the stories of those impacted by our partners’ programming, meet our partner staff, learn about Nepal’s context, and have quite a few adventures along the way.  Thank you to MCC Alberta for bringing your spirit of curiosity, adventure and encouragement to us in Nepal!
