Save the Children Mozambique

The foundation for the future project was established by Save the Children Mozambique In order to promote access to quality and equitable early Childhood Development and Education programme for Children in Mozambique. Mozambique is currently ranked 83rd among the world’s 100 developing countries on an index of preparation for school success due to its high rates of children out of school (27 per cent), low gross intake ratio in 5th grade (42 per cent) and low rates of female literacy (33 per cent).
 
The foundation for the future project was established by Save the Children Mozambique In order to promote access to quality and equitable early Childhood Development and Education programme for Children in Mozambique. Mozambique is currently ranked 83rd among the world’s 100 developing countries on an index of preparation for school success due to its high rates of children out of school (27 per cent), low gross intake ratio in 5th grade (42 per cent) and low rates of female literacy (33 per cent).
 
A mere four percent of the country’s 4.5 million children under age five are enrolled in ECDE services, and many of those are found among wealthier populations in urban areas. As a result of these inefficiencies in the education system, a mere 46 percent of children complete the basic education cycle. There is no national strategy to govern the response for this age group, although one is currently in development; no dedicated budget allocation; limited teacher training or physical infrastructure for ECDE
 
Therefore, this project plans to conduct an analysis of current literacy program approach based on impact evaluation results and revision of emergent literacy approach, carry out a community mapping to identify all children ages 0-8 in each community, conduct Sensitization of Pre-school Management Committee and Leaders around needs of most marginalized children, training of health service providers and care givers on health and nutrition warning signs, conduct teacher Learning Circles on Pre-school Curriculum Activities, as well as carrying out book production fairs to encourage writers and publishers to produce children’ books.
