The Platform was subsequently launched in November 2003 by the Swiss Academy for Development (SAD) and has been operated by them ever since.

The Swiss Network for Education and International Cooperation (RECI) is part of a global network that works to raise the quality of education globally. In 2012, SAD was entrusted with running the secretariat of the RECI for a renewable period of two years. SAD's long-time experience with managing networks supports RECI member organisations in exchanging their experiences. This will allow for relevant educational institutions and specialists to share their good practice expertise more easily, which will ultimately aim to improve the quality of international standards of education. SAD therefore plays a central role in this Swiss Network for Education and International Cooperation.

The Swiss Academy for Development is pleased to announce that we have received this year’s Ecopop prize for our ‘Move 4 New Horizons’ (M4NH) project. M4NH is working in Nepal to improve access to schooling and vocational training for children from marginalised groups and has already received several awards and commendations.
So far more than 2000 Nepalese children and young people have benefited from the non-formal sport and play-based approach. Thanks to the prize from Ecopop, modules on voluntary family planning will also be integrated into the vocational training programme for school leavers and young job-seekers.
