Project Launch: 1-6-20
Girl Child Education Movement (GCEM) in partnership with Mgawo Village Development Committee will construct a modern Early Childhood Development Centre (ECD) targeting over 100 children annually. Once completed, the ECD center will improve the physical, cognitive, linguistic and socio-emotional developmental domains of children ages 0-5 years. The project will also provide improved safety to all the children as they are currently learning in a grass thatched shelter. The project is expected to contribute to increased enrollment and improved performance by the children as they prepare for primary school.
Project Update: 5-19-20
Four months after funding, Girl Child Education Movement (GCEM) has completed 95% of its planned work towards the construction of Mgawo Early Childhood Development Center. The building has been roofed, floored, and painted. Learner centered paintings have also been completed. Production of desks and training of caregivers are the two activities remaining to fully complete the project. By now, over 120 children would have started learning but have been affected by the COVID 19 pandemic which ledGovernment to temporarily close all schools. Senior Group Mgawo is excited with the project and had this to say: “I never expected that I would have a modern nursery school in my area after over two decades of requesting the same from the government and different NGOs but to no avail. I am speechless to see a beautiful structure like this in my area. Our children’s future is now secured as they will learn in a safe environment. Thank you GCEM and World Connect.”
