Early Childhood Development Program
Teaching is a major Challenge when it comes to children with developmental challenges especially autism. These children with special needs require a safe, familiar and nonthreatening, open environment for learning. If not, their discomfort is manifested through various means (shouting, rolling, hand flapping, crouching, etc.) all deterrents to their attention and concentration. A consistent, peaceful look and feel for the classrooms in which they move gives them a more comfortable and secure feeling. Also, the therapy and outdoor play equipment has to be easy and safe to use for our children with gross motor and fine motor difficulties. Once the children are settled in these infrastructures’ matters, it will facilitate their sitting tolerance and focus to better learning.
Early Childhood Development (ECD) refers to a comprehensive approach to policies and programs for children from 0 to 6 years of age, their parents and caregivers. Lifetime behavior patterns are formed during this period when brain development is most active. As such, what happens or does not happen during these early years of a child’s life, influences their growth and development outcomes as well as opportunities in adulthood. As children acquire the ability to speak, learn and reason in early years, cornerstones are laid and later affect their orientation to development and thriving in life.
Tabita Women Empowerment Program
Many African families rely on women to care for them and to provide basic necessities for survival. As African women receive education and are recognized with a higher legal status, they provide their households with superior nutrition, stronger food security and increased access to health care. Despite the crucial investments women make in their families and the contributions they make to their communities, Sub-Saharan women constitute only 15% of the region’s landholders, and they face disproportionate challenges ranging from sexual exploitation to illiteracy and disease. Regrettably, women suffer silently in the background. But Rainbow Development Initiative knows the important role women play in reviving economies, and it knows women can be leaders. RDI is collaborating with its partners and with African communities to provide leadership opportunities that encourage women to participate in stakeholder committees through highly ranking leadership coaching, literacy training, business training, organizational mobilization and market access, enabling women entrepreneurs to sell their goods in the global community.
