Lively Minds is an award-winning NGO working to get pre-schoolers in rural Ghana & Uganda school-ready. Over 250 million children under 5 years globally do not get the early childhood care and education (“ECCE”) they need, leading to poor health, poor education, lost life opportunities and poverty.
We believe that one of the main barriers to ECCE is that parents in remote resource-poor villages lack the information, education and aspiration to provide basic and affordable opportunities for their children. We have developed an innovative behaviour-change programme that empowers marginalized, poorly educated mothers to run educational Play Schemes for pre-schoolers and to provide better home-based care, using cheap local resources.
These are exciting times for Lively Minds. In Ghana, we are finalising a partnership agreement with Ministry of Education and Ghana Education Service (“GES”) to integrate the programme in to the national kindergarten system and to support them to scale it in Northern Ghana reaching approximately 4000 kindergartens and 1.1 million children.
