Introduction

The recent emergency has aggravated mounting challenges to achieve SDG 4 and the Sindh Right  to Free & Compulsory Education Act 2013 for children aged 3-16 years. Sindh has progressively  integrated ECCE in the RTE Act 2013 (Article 9) to build strong foundations for its children. The  two-day Conference on Foundational Learning and Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) in  Emergencies to be held on June 15-16, 2023 will address three objectives; these include to:  

Conference on Early Childhood Care & Education (ECCE) & Foundational Learning in Emergencies

Hosted by the School Education & Literacy Department - (SELD) Government of Sindh

Concept Note:

The province of Sindh has been the worst affected due to the monster floods of 2022. Over 60% of the schools have been partially and fully damaged, causing further disruption to learning incurred during COVID-19. The School Education & Literacy Department (SELD), Government of
Sindh is boldly dealing with the Floods Emergency Response supported by multiple allies, viz. civil society, development partners and industry. The recent emergency has aggravated mounting challenges to achieve SDG 4 and the Sindh Right to Free & Compulsory Education Act 2013 for
children aged 3-16 years. Sindh has progressively integrated ECCE in the RTE Act 2013 (Article 9) to build strong foundations for its children.
There is a growing consensus nationally and globally that ‘Foundational Learning’ is under threat undermining the targets of SDG 4. There are two definitions of Foundational learning that pivot a close linkage across ECCE and Lower Primary education up to grade 3 ( 3-8 years).
