Support vulnerable children

Our second focus is to support vulnerable young children and their parents.

We are determined also, to see the opportunities that this crisis brings.  Our socio-economic context means that usually most little people have very little time with their parent/s.  The lockdown brings a beautiful opportunity for families to spend time together.  We are sharing a contextually accessible, culturally relevant, digitally available education program for the 3000 young children, reached by the PEN Pre-school Forum, to have some structure,  stimulation and fun at home with their parents!  If after the lockdown, parent-child relationships are stronger and parents see the results of investing in their child’s development, our families will be stronger, our youth will be stronger, and our nation will be stronger.
