ECD Achievement on Education
Another area of focus is educational access for impoverished children. As a result, the center has made an important impact on enhancing access to education for children from poor families. The center’s contribution includes its work in enhancing access to pre primaries for children from poor families. In many parts of Ethiopia, especially in impoverished areas and localities school aged children are kept at home missing out the key formation stage of their lives. In some poor areas where there is attempt to cater for the needs of pre primary children, there are inadequate facilities. ECD has witnessed that the children are kept outdoors under sheds or in run down classrooms with inappropriate facilities. Hence, ECD not only built pre-primaries fully furnished with adequate facilities and outdoor playgrounds but it also provided up to standard teaching aids and learning materials. Furthermore, the center has also successfully assisted poor girls in formal high school education for higher grades and better performance for better futures and possibility of pursuing higher education and subsequent gainful employment.
