A Story of Hope: A Foundation to Thrive

A Plan-supported Early Childhood Care Center is ensuring that children are healthy and well-prepared for school.

In rural West Africa, Mariama and the other parents in her village work in the fields all day. In the past, they often had to leave their young children unattended, or they had to pull one of their older children out of school to babysit. The little ones were vulnerable to accidents and abuse—a few even died. Then Plan built an Early Childhood Care and Development Center in their village. Now they have two classroom blocks, a storeroom, and latrines. Trained educators use an engaging curriculum to teach 160 children how to socialize, sing, write, count, and practice good hygiene. Serving children aged 3-6 and their caregivers, the Center also offers monthly medical checks and birth registration activities. Now children can stay healthy and are well prepared and excited to start primary school.
