The Kaduna State Basic Education Accountability Mechanism (KADBEAM) is mobilising stakeholders to strengthen Early Child Development (ECD) in Kaduna State.
KADBEAM is collaborating with Lafiya, a United Kingdom (UK) support for health in Nigeria.
KADBEAM Assistant Secretary Mr Joshua James said at the meeting in Kaduna yesterday that the stakeholders were mobilised to review the status of ECD in the state.
According to him, the goal is to identify bottlenecks and make recommendations to strengthen implementation of ECD programmes in the state.
Mr Elkana Aliyu, Accountability and Advocacy Coordinator, Lafiya said stakeholders’ coordination and evidence-based advocacy was crucial to effective implementation of ECD.
Aliyu said the activity aims to understand the state context, policy and funding constraints as well as understand the power dynamics and key influencers and change agents for ECD in the state.
The facilitator, Dr Lawal Abubakar, a consultant, said early childhood was a critical period of human development, adding that strong evidence exists on the significant benefits of quality ECD interventions
