For the first time, the African Early Childhood Network (AfECN), in partnership with the Government of Tanzania through the Ministry of Community Development, Gender, Women and Special Groups, the Tanzania Early Childhood Development Network (TECDEN) and other partners will be convening the Eastern Africa Regional Early Childhood Conference to provide a platform for taking stock of the status of early childhood development in the region and sharing knowledge and learning on how to take innovative models of quality early childhood interventions to scale.
The conference is expected to bring together a diverse group of early childhood actors, including policy makers, researchers, CSOs, academia, funders, early childhood practitioners, government ministries, departments and agencies to discuss and make concrete deliberations on early investment trajectory in Eastern Africa.
Under the theme “Investing in Early Childhood: Building Human Capital Along the Life Course” the conference is planned to be held at Mwalimu Julius K Nyerere Conference Centre on March 11-14, 2024. Applications for international participants are now open while for Tanzanians will be open soon. Organisers are also inviting submissions for abstracts, sponsorships and side events learning sessions.
