Early Childhood Care and Development

 

Since 2012, SASCU has been running an Early Childhood Development Project (ECCD), an initiative that targets vulnerable children from the community between the ages of three to six years. Emerging out of the between SASCU, Plan Uganda and the Community members of Mulago 111 parish in Kawempe division, the project has enrolled over one hundred and five children (105) children and provided them with scholastic materials. The high prevalence of poverty and AIDs compelled SASCU to take up the ECCD project as a mitigation measure aimed at reducing the number of children that do not go to school within the slums of Kifumbira and Mulago.

Children’s protective environment has been defended by supporting parents, caregivers and pregnant women, as well as looking at wider contexts, such as government policies and societal attitudes.
