Promising Results from Floating Villages ECCD Program in Cambodia

Endline analysis using IDELA and CREDI tools


Save the Children's Early Childhood Care and Development for Floating Villages project was funded through a grant under the World Bank-administered Japan Social Development Fund (JSDF) and implemented over a period of three years (2015 - 2018). The objective of the Project was to improve access to quality early childhood care and development services through community and home-based programs for children 0-6 years old, particularly for those from disadvantaged backgrounds, in 137 villages along the Tonle Sap River and Tonle Sap Lake in Kampong Chhnang and Pursat provinces. It reached a total of 10,840 children.

The objective of the endline study was to estimate the CREDI and IDELA child development outcomes of children, as well as practices of their primary caregivers, in the target village. In general, the overall findings show very encouraging results compared to baseline in all domains examined.
