The project comes from TDHITs expertise in the country education sector. The project, lasting 36 months, aims to contribute to the improvement of the educational services in Mozambique focusing on quality, equitable and inclusive and in particular on children between 3 and 8 years of age. The government investment in the early childhood sector is minimal, despite foreseen by the country strategies. In fact, children between 3 and 5 years old who have access to the preschool system is just 3.5%, educational services in the preschool sector are of low quality and there is no structured and widespread vocational training system for childhood educators in the country. Short training courses or a total lack of training prevail and only 20% of educators have participated in a course lasting 3-4 months, which in any case only provides basic preparation on the minimum standards required. In primary school 1st cycle, learning is very low and only the 4.9% of children in the 3rd grade have developed basic skills. The inclusiveness of the education system is limited and the school staff do not have adequate preparation to allow effective participation of children with disabilities, despite the fact that in 2020 the Government approved the Estrategia de Educação Inclusiva e Desenvolvimento da Criança com Deficiencia 2020-2029. The strategy foresees a transition from the system of Special schools (5 in the country) to the inclusive ones. Furthermore, the community-based child protection system is very fragile given that the identification and management of cases of violation of childrens rights, according to the government’s plans, would be the responsibility of the Community Child Protection Committees (CCPC), that in many areas are not present or not functioning due to lack of training and technical support. The intervention involves the participation of different entities which, each with its own specificity, will contribute to the achievement of results and in particular: • TDHIT will ensure the technical and administrative coordination of the initiative and contribute with expertise in the field of education, professional training and child protection; • AIFO, expert in inclusion, in consortium with TDHIT, will ensure that the strategies and approaches adopted by AICS in the guidelines on people with disabilities and social inclusion are respected across all activities; • MGCAS, ministry responsible for pre-school and disability sectors; • MINEDH, ministry responsible for primary education sector; • UNIMC, an Italian university that will guarantee technical assistance in the field of inclusive education; • ADEMO, for the experience and in-depth knowledge of the rights of people with disabilities and inclusive education in Mozambique; • RDPI as a local CSO of reference for early childhood development; • Instituto Mwana, training institute with specific skills and experience in the training of childhood educators. Educ-IN aims to improve the quality of early childhood development, preschool and primary education in the intervention area, with a specific focus on children with disabilities. The project will be implemented in Maputo city and Province, as well as Sofala and Nampula Provinces. The intervention will reach 163,788 (81,051 F) children between 3 and 8 years old and 345,318 (177,750 F) people over 20 years of age. read more close
