ECCE Teachers Support Program

We support the Port Vila Branch of the Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) Teachers Association by providing workshops, resources and secretarial support. This association is self funded and connects around seventy (70) ECCE teachers in Port Vila and the immediate surrounds. Training opportunities for teachers are extremely limited and practical workshops by volunteers are greatly appreciated. In 2018 the Association conducted the largest ever Kindy Day activity with around 1,500 children and teachers attending. In addition many parents came to join in the fun. The members of the Association managed to run this event without funding support of any kind which was a major milestone in an environment where most activities are supported by an aid donor and 'lack of funds' is a common excuse for inactivity. The Association is steadily building its capacity to fulfil its role in helping to lift the standard of ECCE in Vanuatu.
