Comments An Early Childhood Development Center was established in early 2012, located in the host community area close to Sanischare refugee camp. The center provides full day care services for refugee and host community children aged 2-5 years, thereby facilitating their mothers’ participation in livelihood opportunities. The center has the capacity to accommodate for 30 children at one time and it is staffed with three trained individuals (2 from the refugee community and 1 from the host community). The center offers adequate care arrangements, access to age appropriate developmental activities as well as toys and games and access to health care. There is also an outdoor area available for activities. Food needs to be provided by the children’s own family members.
