It takes a Village …
In September 2014, Tim Mahlberg, Host of The Village will be climbing Mt Kilimanjaro to raise awareness of Project SAMA’s gender equality work, helping girls get access to education in Uganda. His Mum is coming along for the climb too! (Go Mum!)
Only 23% of children in Uganda currently have access to early learning services, with children from rural areas more likely to miss out than their urban counterparts. In fact, most 3 to 6 year-olds in rural areas miss out on preschool entirely.
In rural Uganda, parents often have limited knowledge of the importance of early learning and how integral it is to a child’s development. Plan’s Early Learning projects are of particular benefit to girls because they help to promote equality between girls and boys and ensure that parental attitudes and practices are supportive of young children of both sexes.
