ECWI's first country study released

The Early Childhood Workforce Initiative (ECWI), hosted by ISSA and R4D (Results for Development), is a global effort to support practitioners in the field of ECD. Under ECWI, a series of country studies will examine ways to strengthen and scale up a quality workforce. The first of these studies focuses on Cuna Más, a large-scale ECD program in Peru that operates a home visiting service in rural areas. Cuna Más operates at central, regional, and local levels and builds the capacity of its workforce through induction and training and technical assistance.

Early Childhood Development policies and programs targeting young children and families, such as home visiting interventions, can positively impact a child's development and lead to long-term health, education, and social benefits. These programs employ numerous professionals, paraprofessionals, and volunteers. It is essential for this early childhood workforce to be highly prepared and well-supported to ensure that young children have a strong foundation for healthy development and future success
You can find out more and the read a detailed analysis of the Cuna Más on the Knowledge Hub of the Early Childhood Workforce Initiave website.
