Promotion Early Childhood Development (ECD) is one of YONECO’s strategic interventions under Child Development and Protection Programme. Among other benefits, ECD activities help to create a child’s foundation for learning, enhances child protection and help to promote good health among children.
Over the years, YONECO has been facilitating the establishment of ECD centres in rural and remote parts of Malawi. However, some centres were reportedly having challenges due to lack of teaching and learning materials. Thus, 2022, YONECO organized a weeklong session for caregivers from Ntcheu district who were trained in Teaching and Learning Using Locally Available Resources (TALULAR).
During the session, caregivers were trained in making various ECD Centre teaching and learning resources. In total, 13 caregivers from some parts of Ntcheu district attended the training session.
The training is expected to contribute towards improved education outcomes in the targeted areas.
