Challenge

In 20 communities of Mwingi North in Kitui County in Eastern Kenya, a semi-arid area, where most families depend on agriculture to earn a living, & women often spend a great deal of time in the fields, young children often spend the day trekking in the hot sun after their mothers. When time comes for the children to go to primary school, these children are ill prepared, having missed out on the benefits of early childhood education and development & often drop out, which perpetuates poverty.

Solution

WEMIHS seeks to expand community involvement that sustain and grow quality early childhood services through supporting:1) Skills to increase income generation & building assets that help vulnerable families 2) Training & skills for care givers on early childhood care & positive parenting 3) Mobilizing community engagement with local authorities to leverage greater ECD & protective services for their children from Govt. 4) Building skills of ECD volunteers & teachers to sustain 20 ECD centres.

Long-Term Impact

WEMIHS aims to enable communities to respond to early childhood development needs that have long term impact on the health & well being of their children. Increase # of children from vulnerable households accessing early childhood services (play, learning, health, nutrition & protection), improve wellbeing & livelihoods of vulnerable families caring for young children, increase local government budget allocation for ECD agenda & increase school readiness increase enrollment & retention.
