CIA is child focused organization. We promote access to quality Early Childhood Education which is a crucial foundation for child development.

The focus is on children below 8 years enrolled in the early learning centers mainly established in the public primary schools in Lenkisim and Olchorronyori locations. Most of the ECD centers in public schools are in a pathetic state. These centers lack basic infrastructure like classrooms and pit latrines. These centers do not portray a child friendly environment as they also lack safe drinking water, age appropriate tables and chairs, learning materials for both indoor and outdoor games. Most of the teachers are not trained to handle young children and therefore the children do not benefit adequately in learning.

Strategic Objectives:

  1. To build the capacity of ECD teachers to ably implement the new curriculum in the ECD centers.
  2. To promote child friendly environments in schools and specifically for the children in ECD centers by providing tables, chairs, school bags, story books, play materials and equipment.
  3. To construct relevant infrastructure in ECD centers like classrooms and pit latrines.
  4. To provide clean drinking and cooking water for the children in ECD centers.
