Fifty people have been awarded certificates of attendance in early childhood development.

They were awarded with certificates after successfully going through a 14-day basic course on a Malawi Early Childhood Development (ECD) training manual.

The training, arranged by the Evangelical association of Malawi (EAM) was funded by the Norwegian Church Aid. 

According to officials from the association, through such trainings service delivery in areas of early childhood development in Malawi can greatly improve.

They believe that although there are nearly 20,000 child caregivers and over 300 Community Based Child Care Centres (CBCCCs) in the country, the 50 that have recently graduated will have a huge impact wherever they go.

Speaking to Capital FM Atupele Mwalweni, who is an ECD Trainer, said that sometimes it is difficult to improve the early childhood sector due to a lack of transparency by some organisations which fail to be transparent when they receive funding from various donors.

The trainer stressed that this is one of the things that is making donors to shun Malawian organisations in terms of funding.

Speaking during the presentation ceremony Director of Planning and Development for Karonga District Council, David Kayiwonanga Gondwe disclosed that there is a need for nongovernmental organisations to utilise funds they receive from donors so that Malawians benefit as well.

The Director further revealed that the Council is planning on joining forces with the EAM through the office of the district social welfare to provide expertise on the same.

Training modules consisted of child development, working with physically challenged children, child milestones assessment, child rights protection, nutrition, food security, hygiene.

To add on that it also consisted of psychosocial support, making care resource mobilisation, community development, creating a learning community and gender mainstreaming in ECD services.
