Informal Play Groups
Humana People to People Botswana is in pursuit to ensure quality education for all remains at the heart of its work. We go with the principle that responsibility of education lies with societies as a whole, not only with institutions. We strongly believe that education must lead to transformation of the individual, of the community and of the wider society.
Child Aid aims to achieve Sustainable Development Goal 4: ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all. We believe that education is a vital tool to alleviate poverty and essential to national and global development, providing the foundations for a brighter future. As such, early childhood development is considered one of the major factors that stimulate children to succeed in primary school.In 2019, Humana People to People Botswana contributed to provision of culturally sensitive early childhood development activities in Ghanzi and Selebi Phikwe. Child aid supported informal early learning for orphans and vulnerable children.
Child Aid established play stimulation groups in both center’s for children less than 6 years of age who could not attend to preschool due to low family income. The classes provided a much needed and necessary stimulation period for the children to prepare themselves to start primary school. The Child Aid program worked with existing Preschools in the community.
