This initiative is aimed at extending and enhancing ECD centres that serve lower-middle to middle-income families in South Africa and Rwanda, providing more children with foundational skills in literacy, numeracy and socio-emotional learning needed to succeed.

More details on the facility and what’s ahead can be found in CATALYZE EduFinance’s press release here.
