By Zoila Palma: Today, UNICEF Belize donated five Early Childhood Development Kits to the Ministry of Education for children in vulnerable communities and schools.
The kits will be used to promote early stimulation and learning for children during COVID-19. Each kit can support learning activities for 50 students.
The kits can be used for a range of activities to encourage the development and social interaction of children with materials also provided for caregivers.
In addition, the kit provides water and sanitation items for the improved health and awareness of children.
The contribution is part of UNICEF’s broader programme of cooperation with the Government of Belize on Early Childhood Development and Education both for primary and secondary levels.
“Education is one of the most important drivers of human capital investment. When children lose out on education, they lose out on future opportunities, including economic benefits such as additional earnings, with far-reaching consequences,” Parker shared.
Over the past year, through the pandemic and natural disasters including floods and hurricanes, UNICEF provided critical hygiene supplies through the support of USAID and the U.S. Embassy.
The sanitization stands and liquid hand sanitizers donated by the U.S. Government and UNICEF Belize will be distributed to schools nationwide as determined by the Ministry of Education.
