CIA is child focused organization. We promote access to quality Early Childhood Education which is a crucial foundation for child development.
The target is children below 8 years and their parents/caregivers in early learning centers within public primary schools. These early learning centers do not portray a child friendly environment, as they lack basic learning infrastructure resources like classrooms, appropriate tables and chairs, and pit latrines. The absence of safe drinking water and a feeding program, impacts negatively on the retention of the girl child who is burdened with the task of fetching water. This denies her valuable learning time.
We are keen to ensure that the girl child gets equal opportunities for learning at an early stage. This will set pace for incremental learning through primary, secondary and tertiary levels.
- To promote parental education for child development, through nurturing care and care for child development.
- To promote child friendly environments in ECD centers by providing appropriate tables, chairs, school bags, story books, play materials and equipment.
- To support a community led feeding program.
- To promote retention of girls right from ECD to secondary level.
