“Children whose earliest years are blighted by hunger or disease or whose minds are not stimulated by appropriate interaction with adults and their environment pay for these early deficits throughout their lives – and so does society. Such children are far more likely than their more fortunate peers to do poorly in school, to drop out early, to be functionally illiterate, and to be only marginally employable in today’s increasingly high-technology world. Collectively, these children who have been deprived in early life therefore affect labour productivity and national economic prosperity.”

NEA Foundation’s DREAM is to get involved in more ECD (Early Childhood Development) centres and help develop, mentor and encourage the staff at the centre. This will lead to positive staff that will in turn be able to give each child the opportunity to grow and develop to their potential. Leading to independent, confident children that are able to make good decisions about their future and the country’s future. Making out beautiful country one of HOPE and POSSIBILITY for the future!!
