Right To Play secured funding from LDS charities to implement a “Childs Play - Strengthening Early Childhood Development Education in Northern Uganda” project in 2019 with the aim of improving access and quality of early childhood education for 3,000 refugee and host community children. It improved school readiness and increased access to ECD Centers for children. 100 ECD teachers (50 female) and 30 government education officials also received training and mentorship.
This baseline data was collected to inform the development of realistic and achievable targets grounded within the local context. Data informed organizational strategic learning (challenges, lessons and good practices on the use of IDELA framework) and capacity building. The baseline data was collected in the six (6) ECD centers targeted by the project located in refugee settlements and host communities in Adjumani and these included; Agojo, Pagirinya, Mungula, Maaji and Adjumani town council.
