In response to that critical need in early childhood education in the Settlement YIDA has initiated three ECD Centres and trained up to 36 youth providing community based care protection in the three ECD’s. it’s sad that most of the school enrolled children didn’t benefit from the continuous learning during the lock down, except around 930(31.4%) children that YIDA has been providing the door to door home learning from 4 ECD”s with one from the host community.
YIDA is glad and commended for giving support in way that no NGO, no Agency that did it in such benefiting manner. YIDA distributed Hand washing facilities and Soaps (to maintain hygiene during pandemic) to every beneficiary of home learning, home learning package (including package of crayon, pencils, and rubber), and Parents boost guide for ECD (prepared by the National curriculum development Centre (NCDC)), with regular visit and monitoring of caregivers. This is unique.
