Readt to learn? AED funded pilot project

The Ready to Learn Centre at the Academy for Educational Development (AED) has received funding to support a pilot project in Nutrition Education. This initiative is aimed at any interested agency involved in nutrition rehabilitation programmes to implement or support nutrition education in the centre. Their 'Ready to Learn' staff can help field personnel develop simple learning tools for better early child development. These are then shared with children and carers. Examples of how the 'Ready to Learn' personnel can help and train your teams are:

The 'Ready to Learn' team visit the centres you are working in and help train your staff on the ground. AED require the participating agency to facilitate communications and logistics. This is a short-term initiative that may be of interest to field staff.

If you are interested in participating in this project, please contact Diane Lusk at dlusk@aed.org or Sarah Dastur at sdastur@aed.org. Alternatively write to the Academy for Educational Development, 1875 Connecticut Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20009- 1202.
