Early Child Education

Promotion of Early Childhood Education (ECE) in 30 Schools

A key goal of USAID’s Small Grants and Ambassador’s Fund Program is to engage with civil society and communities to increase safe access to quality education for girls.  Specifically, the program reduces the barriers that prevent girls from beginning or completing their schooling, while also empowering them to advocate for their right to education. USAID supports innovative activities to achieve these goals by providing small grantsto local organizations.
