Uganda ECD Centre Development Co-ordinator
The IREAD field team identifies villages that need an ECD Centre for which they are willing to donate land and elect a Centre Management Committee (CMC)
IREAD signs a written agreement with the CMC that specifies the amount of unskilled labour and local materials they will provide for the construction of the centre. This ensures that costs are well contained
- The Aga Khan Education Service Pakistan (AKESP)
- The Aga Khan University’s Professional Development Centre in Chitral (PDCC)
- Eagle Eye Education Institute (EEEI) - Chitral
- The Madrassa Early Childhood Program Uganda (MECPU) of the Aga Khan Foundation
By 2017 IREAD had built 10 ECD Centres in Northern Pakistan and 6 in Uganda. We had 1475 children attending these 16 centres and had trained 59 ECD teachers.
The centres in Uganda are certified and registered with the Ministry of Education and follow the national ECD curriculum
The centres in Pakistan are monitored by the Aga Khan Education Services and follow their curriculum.
