Early Childhood Development and Family (ECD&F)
In 2013, Her Excellency Mrs Jeannette Kagame launched the Early Childhood Development and Family (ECD&F) programme, to support the holistic development of children aged 0 to 6 years old. The goal of the programme is to ensure that children are intellectually stimulated, healthy and safe, while their families and communities are trained as caregivers.
The ECD&F programme is implemented in the following approaches:
• ECD centres (3 to 6 years old)
• Home-based services (3 to 6 years old)
• Home visits (0 to 3 years old)
In addition, parents receive training on Income Generating Activities (IGAs). Imbuto Foundation offers and delivers integrated Early Childhood Development services in 16 districts, namely: Gasabo, Nyarugenge, Kicukiro, Gicumbi, Gakenke, Nyamasheke, Ruhango, Nyamagabe, Nyabihu, Kayonza, Ngoma, Rwamagana, Rutsiro, Nyanza, Ngororero and Burera.
