Early Childhood Care and Education, Kenya: A Progress Report on a Development Project. Reprints and Miniprints No. 803.
Svensson, Bengt E.
This report describes the background and performed activities of the development project Early Childhood Care and Education, in Kenya, from 1988 to 1993. The main purpose of the project is to stimulate activities for the benefit and development of preschool children in Kenya. The project deals with aspects of nutrition, health care, health education, and educational stimulation for children 3-6 years old. The three main activities of the project are (1) research and development work; (2) training activities; and (3) sponsorship. The research and development work has been conducted through the "Two Villages Project," which stimulates activities and contributes to improvement of the environment in two rural villages. The training activities at the Kenyatta University Child Care Center have not yet been developed. In the area of sponsorship, money has been collected for a frequent milk supply and for a roof for a newly built preschool house in the project villages. The present political and economic situation in Kenya makes it difficult for the project to carry on with its plans. (AP)
