In Nepal, Early Childhood Education (ECE) enrollment is low, especially among the poorest quintile of citizens where only 41 percent are able to access any type of ECE resources. Children are often ill-equipped to successfully start and stay in school from grade 1, while families do not have the resources to provide any meaningful support to remedy the situation.
The Big Idea
The Asia Foundation’s Let’s Read program will train community mobilizers as ECE facilitators and will engage children and their families through thirty weekly, in-person Ready2Read and Play sessions aligned with the Government of Nepal’s ECE curriculum.
