New Day Care Centre established!

International Childcare Trust has working in partnership with Muloma Women’s Development Association (MUWODA) since 2011, supporting ‘Empower 840 Women & Children in Sierra Leone’. 

This project aims to protect and empower over 1,000 disadvantaged and war-affected children and youth in Sierra Leone through provision of vital services, knowledge and skills, including training in nutrition and crop production for mothers, vocational training for youths, and awareness raising on child rights within the community.

So far, with the donations we’ve received, MUWODA has been able to establish a Day Care Centre, which will provide care, play and pre-primary education to up to 30 children aged 1-6 each year.  This will give young vulnerable mothers, who previously had to stay at home and care for their children, increased opportunity to find employment and improve their socio-economic conditions.  The donations have specifically been used to furnish and equip the centre and pay the salaries of the teachers and care givers. 

Stay tuned for further updates on the Day Care Centre and the other elements of the project which are yet to get started!  We are just waiting for some new photos - as soon as we receive them, we'll put them up!
