Brief update on Nepal

Yohoshu S. Limbu (Joshua), is the ICDP Project Coordinator at the Early Childhood Education Centre in Kathmandu, Nepal.

In his recent update about the progress of ICDP in Nepal, Joshua is informing us about the commitment of many local organizations that have been participating in the ICDP training during 2015 and 2016. There are currently 39 ICDP certified facilitators who work for children and families in 12 different organizations.

Each year the ICDP facilitators deliver the ICDP programme to a new group of caregivers. So far, the facilitators applied the ICDP programme with over 200 hundred parents/caregivers.

ICDP was found useful in enhancing the healthy psychosocial development of children.

The project is financed by HimalPartner and it is coordinated by the Early Childhood Education Centre (ECEC).

In October 2016, a group of 14 trainees (on photo above) attended the ICDP workshop at Trainer Level. They will continue with the ICDP process to become ICDP trainers in 2017. Their plan is to then start training on national scale by forming  new groups of ICDP facilitators all over Nepal, reaching thousands of caregivers throughout the country.
