Lively Minds works to get pre-schoolers in rural Ghana and Uganda school-ready.
Working through government our programme builds the skills and confidence of marginalised mothers to run educational Play Schemes, and provide nurturing care at home. This improves the quality of life and life-chances for children, whilst empowering parents and communities.
"The Lively Minds programme is an effective and potentially scalable way to improve children’s’ cognitive and socio-emotional development and health, which constitute critical components of school readiness. The positive effects on cognitive development are particularly strong for children living in the most socio-economically deprived households".
