The Aga Khan Foundation has signed an agreement with the Kwale County government to train early childhood teachers.

The agreement will see the foundation support Early Child Development Education (ECDE) programmes in the county.

The foundation and the county will have shared commitment to the children by providing learning opportunities.

Speaking during the signing ceremony at the Kwale Cultural Centre on Wednesday, Aga Khan Foundation Chief Executive Officer for East Africa Kevin Moorhead said the partnership will benefit more than 100,000 schoolchildren from across the county.

He said the foundation will train teachers in early childhood development and support school management committees and construct classrooms.

“Today we are not only celebrating a partnership between two organisations but more importantly we are celebrating the future of our children,” he said.

Mr Moorhead lauded the Kwale County government for its efforts to improve education standards in schools.

“I would like to congratulate the governor and his team because I have not seen a county which takes the social development agenda so seriously and has done so much,” he said.
