Learning While Playing Edutainment Radio Program

by Equal Access International

From its inception in 2004, Learning While Playing has provided rural Nepali children and families with crucial information on Early Childhood Development (ECD). Learning While Playing discusses important issues such as proper nutrition, school readiness, health check-ups, proper infant care and the importance of parental involvement.

A 2006 questionnaire found that 60 percent of listeners believed the program helped their understanding of the importance of ECD and increased their knowledge of proper child rearing and healthy livelihoods. Because of our integrated feed-back loop the themes on the show adapt to meet the needs of local communities.

Support for Learning While Playing ensures that rural parents and children across Nepal have access to the important tools for happy, healthy childhoods.
