With the support of school and community leaders Nhaka Foundation facilitates meetings with the parents and caregivers of children enrolled in the ECD Centers it serves. The meetings are designed to educate, support and engage stakeholders in finding solutions to building a better future for the children. Heavy emphasis is placed on building capacity and instilling a sense of community ownership and responsibility.
The meetings cover various topics to include the importance of birth registration, immunizations, health record maintenance, HIV/AIDS education and screenings, early childhood development enrollment as well as parental involvement in the education of children.
Nhaka’s parenting education initiative strives to provide caregivers with the information and tools needed to better look after the children in their communities and also makes available a platform for voicing concerns and obtaining support from the school, the community, and the government.
