Finally there is light at the end of the tunnel as schools have opened after closing for the whole of 2020. This has brought a glimpse of hope to the future of the children academically. The 8 Neighborhood Care Points (NCPs) that we support strictly adhere to the covid-19 regulations by only accepting 25 children in the classroom, having water stations at the entrance as well as having masks on.
Schools closure for a long period has really affected these children in many ways as the families they come from are vulnerable and desperate since some of the providers have been casualties of the pandemic hence they lost their jobs.
The NCPs have a major food shortage. This is due to the increased numbers of children and adults that were depending on the NCPs since the advent of covid-19. The NCP cooks and teachers have dedicated their extra time setting up vegetable gardens in order to continue feeding the children nutritious meals. The NCPs have started a program on monitoring the children’s body mass index (BMI) which will help determine the children’s growth as we continue to help provide quality early childhood education to these less fortunate of Eswatini as one writer said “Yesterday is not ours to recover but tomorrow is ours to win or lose".
