We train uneducated vulnerable Mothers in highly deprived rural villages to run educational Play Centres for pre-school children using local materials. This enhances the Mothers' wellbeing & parenting skills and empowers them to improve their children's education and health through play.
Lively Minds empowers communities in Africa to give young children the chance to play and learn – developing children’s ‘lively minds’ so they have a good start in life and the best possible chances for the future. We work with women and youth from deprived rural communities in Ghana and Uganda to help them set up and run their own play centres for children aged 3-6 years old. In the play centres children develop through play and learn about good health and hygiene.
