Over the past 10 years, the Nai Qala Association (NQA) has built schools in regions where children had never even seen a school building. We believe in strengthening their dignity by ensuring that children learn in proper conditions.
Now we are adding a new dimension to our engagement: we are now providing Early Childhood Development (ECD) classes to improve the quality of education for young children aged 5-6 years in the regions where we have built schools.
Dignity through quality learning facilities and quality education is the way forward in rural Afghanistan which accounts for more than 80% of the country’s population.
The ECD program helps children to develop their imagination, talents and confidence at a very young age.
2 pilot ECD classes have started in July
