Welcome to the first issue of the Zimbabwe Early Childhood Development Voice (“ZimVoice”). This new publication is the result of the need to provide some contextually relevant early childhood development (ECD) information and ensure that the Zimbabwean ECD Voice is heard.

June 16, saw the African continent commemorating the Day of the African Child. This inaugural issue provides an Afrocentric perspective to early childhood development in Africa. In January 2020, ZINECDA launched its new updated website (www.zinecda.org) in line with its mandate of providing relevant and context specific ECD information.

Enhancing communications regarding ECD in Zimbabwe is one of the objectives of ZINECDA and it is central to one of our Program areas.

This new quarterly publication is an extended effort by ZINECDA to provide you with more information on the early childhood development sector in Zimbabwe. We hope you enjoy this inaugural issue, which is an e-format for easy reading, printing and distribution.
