You are right but if you remember this was the first attempt for the regional event and this was to a specific group where we pooled resources facilitators from the region.  Following that it proved unrealistic for sustainability and nothing happened until it got revived in Nairobi and i understand a number of events have happened in Nairobi under the EANOG umbrella.

I think to make my point clear i feel it is better to first build local country NOGS then bring them into the Regional Umbrella that way we will make sure that we bring relevance to the NOG concept but also make sure we extend the outreach.

These National NOGS can then come under the Umbrella of the regional NOG.  That will actually then show the impact relevance and value bringing more distributed knowledge base across the continent.
