Government says it will prioritize Early Childhood Development projects in the budget for the Financial Year 2016/ 2017.

Up to about Sh1.2 trillion is to be spent on the National Integrated Early Childhood Development Policy which targets children from conception to 8 years of age.

 

This money is set to be shared out in various sectors of Education, Health, Nutrition, Child Care and Protection, Agriculture, Water and Sanitation and Local Government in the next 5 years.

 

The policy seeks to address emotional, physical and social development of children who are the country’s future generation.
