Early Childhood Development and Family (ECD&F)
In 2013, Her Excellency Mrs Jeannette Kagame launched the ECD&F programme to support the holistic development of children aged 0 to 6. The goal of the programme is to ensure that all children are intellectually stimulated, healthy and safe, while their families and communities are empowered with the right tools to nurture and protect them.
The ECD&F programme focuses on the following approaches:
• ECD centres (3 to 6 years old)
• Home-based services (3 to 6 years old)
• Home visits (0 to 3 years old)
In addition, parents receive training and support in Income Generating Activities (IGAs). Imbuto Foundation offers and delivers the integrated ECD services in 16 districts, namely: Gasabo, Nyarugenge, Kicukiro, Gicumbi, Gakenke, Nyamasheke, Ruhango, Nyamagabe, Nyabihu, Kayonza, Ngoma, Rwamagana, Rutsiro, Nyanza, Ngororero and Burera
