Short Session Description (one line): Early Reading Education 21 and Healthcare Promotion measures in Ntoroko District, Western Uganda.
Providing early learning through collaborating with the parents, children, teachers, education department Ntoroko District and other stake holders will improve early reading in Ntoroko District through extending services nearer to the people.
The pre-primary education has been under the management of the private sector which limits access to the communities because of being demand driven. In rural areas 91% of Uganda’s children are not accessing pre-primary education where early reading is promoted. (NPA2015). Masindi Health Development Program (MHDP) has established Centre’s where early reading is being exercised. The parents are also learning how to read. They also engage in saving and credit to improve their income. We apply early reading technics like engaging the mothers and children, the use of words with real objects and making learning participatory has improved the learning for the children. Our children’s reading skills has improved. Our online activity i.e. Facebook, Peaceflame network brings the Early reading Program through the office 365 platform. Early reading is an alternative way of reading which eliminates dyslexia and has children reading when they start primary.
There is uneven distribution of Early Child Development Centres (ECD) in Ntoroko where early reading is being exercised.
Areas whose population earns a high income tend to attract the ECD Proprietors with an assumption that the parents and guardians will afford fees.
Our plan to improve learning
