Early Childhood Development (ECD) – FIT Project Regional Office Gilgit (ROG)

Overview

Early childhood development is essential for a child’s performance at school, unprepared children tend to fall further behind. Over past decade the Foundation has through its Rawalpindi office, built up an enviable track record in training young women in ECD. Most of the graduating young women have gone to secure employment with local school whilst some more enterprising have established their own pre-school facilities in their local areas. Based on this success and to address the dearth of such practitioners in Gilgit and Baltistan (GB), the Foundation started a project ‘Creating livelihoods through ECD development in Gilgit Baltistan, Pakistan’, funded by German donor, GIZ. The two primary objectives of this project were to:

  • Encourage mainstreaming of ECD in Gilgit and Baltistan and
  • Contribute to the livelihood of 240 young females by providing them with training opportunity in Early Childhood Development (ECD) in five districts of Gilgit-Baltistan.

The key interventions included; mobilization, training, linkages and accommodation of the trainees.

Achievements

  • Conducted 80 awareness/motivational sessions for 4,339 parents, community members, graduates and other stakeholders in five districts of Gilgit-Baltistan (GB)
  • 179 trainees from five districts of Gilgit-Baltistan successfully completed their training and were supported with ECD tool kits
  • Through job fairs, ECD graduates got opportunities to get linked with employers
  • In collaboration with the Aga Khan Rural Support Program (AKRSP), eight Early Childhood development (ECD) Centres were established in three districts of Gilgit-Baltistan, where Hashoo Foundation’s ECD graduates were operating, enhancing their entrepreneurial skills
  • An exposure visit of 8 top performers to Islamabad enabled the toppers to relate and diversify their learnings with various ECD schools
