Kenya - Early Childhood Development Project (Inglês)

The development objective of the Early Childhood Development (ECD) Project is to improve quality and educability of children in poor Kenyan households. The project seeks to: (1) improve child cognitive and psycho-social development; (2) improve child health and nutrition; (3) increase school enrollment at the appropriate age; and (4) reduce dropout and repetition rates in lower primary school. An important collaborative objective is to improve the human capital potential specifically of poor and otherwise disadvantaged pre-schoolers. The project consists of two core components: (1) improving ECD worker training, performance, and supervision; and (2) community capacity building, mobilization, and parenting education. Three pilot interventions will test options to develop cost-effective, replicable models for: (1) improving the financing of ECD services in poor communities by way of community grants; (2) raising nutrition and health standards of pre-schoolers, including those in the particularly vulnerable first three years of life; and (3) smoothing the transition from pre-school to primary school.
