Releasing Confidence and Creativity
(RCC): An Early Childhood Development Programme
Aga Khan Foundation Pakistan (AKFP) and USAID
Balochistan & Sindh
US $1.3-million approx.
Until March 2004
The project "Releasing
Confidence and Creativity (RCC): An Early Childhood Development
Programme", will be launched in 100 communities, targeting
children up to the age of eight with a particular focus
on girls in rural areas. The main elements are advocacy,
teacher training, awareness of childhood education and how
communities can support readiness for school. This is the
first time these communities are to benefit from such a
programme, which resulted from identifying weaknesses in
policies on early childhood education.
