This essential program delivers early childhood development opportunities through 30 centers, educating 4,500 young children in the Hwange District of Zimbabwe. The non-profit program provides a safe place for vulnerable children to attend where they are cared for and educated amid a life of poverty and instability. 

The centers offer a solid foundation to start children on the right path, ensuring not only their educational needs, but their health and wellbeing needs are also being met. Volunteers on this program will work within an amazing organization on a variety of projects across a number of centers. They will experience the local area and participate in many aspects of delivering essential programs to children in need. The centers supply quality educational opportunities for children, along with the opportunity to learn through play. The centers train facilitators on early childhood development curriculum, such as child protection issues, facilitating positive parenting dialogues and child rights to ensure children are well cared for, healthy, happy and ready to learn. Children need a solid start to begin their education journey and this program provides this start.
