2019 Target for New ECD Centres Met!

We are excited to announce that we have achieved our 2019 goal of building

  • Six new Early Childhood Development (ECD) Centres—two in Pakistan, and four in Uganda

The two new ECD Centres in Pakistan, inaugurated in October 2019, were constructed in compounds shared with a primary and a secondary school operated by the Aga Khan Education Services (AKES) who will also manage our ECD centres. These beautiful new schools are constructed with prefabricated light-gauge steel, which makes them very seismically sound. 

  • We have now opened 11 ECD Centres in Chitral, Pakistan

Our Uganda building program is on track with four new ECD Centres nearing completion which will be inaugurated in February of 2020.

  • The opening of these four new Centres will bring us to 10 IREAD ECD Centres in Uganda

  • In 2020 we hope to have over 2500 children attending IREAD ECD Centres thanks to our donors!

Our current Global Giving project focus is to raise $30,000 so that we can provide much needed help to our village-led Centre Management Committees (CMCs) and provide teacher upgrading and building maintenance. The CMCs charge school fees (ranging from $8 to $11 per term), but fees are often waived. Almost all our students’ parents have precarious incomes and paying school fees is not always possible. The fees the CMCs collect pay teacher salaries; school maintenance; supplies and a nutritious meal each day. IREAD provides ongoing teacher training and building maintenance and refurbishment. Every dollar we raise goes to the centres – IREAD’s administrative costs are paid by a private family foundation.

We are very grateful for your support and encouragement and hope you will join us in ensuring these centres continue to provide quality activity-based ECD opportunities to the deserving children of Pakistan and Uganda.
