Every child deserves the best start in life and the opportunity to thrive. We are excited to update you that our New Early Childhood Development Center had Opened! The Center is designed in a way it has the children classrooms, a library, a food bank, children play grounds for both games and child stimulation activities, Vegetable Garden, and the administration offices.
The new ECD is about supporting a child in these critical early years, providing holistic access to early learning, good nutrition, hygiene and protection. Currently it is able to accomodate 250 children of Gashora Village. We enrolled children beneficiaries according to the survey results of the household outreach made to find out who fits the eligibility criteria the most. JHA established to prioritize who is served first since the Center will not be able to accommodate all potential beneficiaries. JHA focused on the most vulnerable children in the most vulnerable households so they have access to early childhood education as a foundation for breaking the chain of poverty in their lives.
We belive that A child’s brain develops rapidly during the early years, and lost opportunities might never be redeemed. JHA gives that opportunity to Gashora Children to come to school every day to learn and interract with their peers. Not only that, they also receive a Breakfast and Lunch everyday at school which plays a bigger role in fighting mulnutrition in their lives.
With gratitude we would like to thank each and every donor who contributed to the construction and operation of our wonderful new Early Childhood Development Center. We share the belief that Children need access to organised early learning opportunities. Your investment has started to transform the lives of the most vulnerable in our community. We are most humbled by your kindness.
Sending you all "Ubuntu and Love"
