Child Education



There is a huge need of early childhood education.  90% of these children come from extremely poor families who live under $1 a day.  The only existing preschools in Nyamata are for the middle class or wealthy.  NCV wishes to educate the poor children who cannot afford school either for financial struggles or for issues related to long distances between schools and the children’s homes. NCV will start an early childhood program, a model preschool for the poor, in Kanazi, Nyamata, a town of approximately 35,000 people. We will provide a feeding program, qualified teachers, integrated curriculums and involve families.  Every year, our plan is to enroll 50 children starting with 2017 in our preschool program until the first batch reaches 6th grade (P6).  We will be feeding the children with two nutritious meals a day to boost their stunted growth; estimated at 4%.
