Highlights in 2016
Education and early childhood
Our education programs are designed to break down the barriers that prevent children from accessing education. At the same time we work with teachers and governments to improve the quality of education. Our early childhood development programs prepare children for school and a future of learning and encourage parents to be the champions of their children’s education.
Where we work: Uganda, Myanmar, Ethiopia, Bangladesh, Zambia, Laos, Vietnam, India
In 2016 our Early Childhood program directly reached 90,615 people with a continued focus on embedding learning around gender and disability inclusion and promoting the role of fathers. Investing Australian Government Australian NGO Cooperation Program (ANCP) funds in inclusive early childhood models has influenced the approach of the Indonesian government through an integrated module, it is being replicated and scaled up by the Women’s Union in Vietnam, and is also being drawn on in a new integrated WASH-Health-Nutrition program in Laos.
