Relieving human suffering in all forms


HuUbuntu pronounced Who – boon -two means compassion and humanity; the idea of ‘I am because we are.” It defines the nebulous concept of common humanity, oneness: humanity, you and me both co-existing together in the same community. Therefore to unite and provide support to the weakest in our families, businesses, schools and communities, the concept of Hunhu/Ubuntu shows us the importance of co-creating ideas and working together towards a shared outcome. This is what defines our work. Our focus is on bringing strength-based philosophies to business and not-for-profits to manage change, strategic planning, culture development and building accountability.

The Zimbabwe Early Childhood Development Network is a national umbrella of Early Childhood Development Organizations working in partnership to influence policies, programmes and practice related to Early Childhood Development (ECD) by sharing information on experiences and generating knowledge and understanding on ECD. The Zimbabwe Network of Early Childhood Actors (ZINECDA) has been established to be a network of ECD actors and to create a platform in which all the issues affecting early learning of children are addressed.
Since inception in 2012, ZINECDA has noted that National Policy can embrace ECD in concert with other policies across a wide range of issue areas. In a situation where there is no standardization of services, infrastructure and other facilities for the children to enjoy, it is important to create a set of tools that will guide each actor to implement a holistic range of services that support the early learning, growth and monitoring of children.



The Southern Africa Network for Early Childhood Development is a sub-regional ECD network that supports and encourages transnational evidence based ECD policy advocacy, promotes quality ECD programs and capacity development of ECD practitioners. SANECD as a Southern Africa sub-regional ECD network has as its members, national ECD networks, academics/scholars, and funders all working to enhance transnational synergies and strengthen cooperation and learning between countries. SANECD cultivates relationships between national ECD networks, identifies policy advocacy and funding opportunities for national ECD network members. This will lead to inspired collaborations thus improve ECD policy development, implementation and resource mobilization and provision of comprehensive ECD services to learners in the Southern Africa region.

ECDinAfrica was established to support a set of SSA-ECD initiatives emanating from the University of Victoria in Canada, but all based in Africa. As these initiatives are complementary, ‘ECD in Africa’ is a home where you can learn about this broad early childhood development work. The unifying purpose of the initiatives has been to promote diverse, but systemically inter-related, facets of ECD leadership capacity promotion in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA).

Africa Early Childhood Network

Co-founded with colleagues in the African early childhood development sector, the idea and conversations of establishing an African Early Childhood Network arose during the World Forum on Early Care and Education held in San Juan – Puerto Rico, in May 2013. AfECN has evolved into a registered regional civil society network bringing together national and regional networks, public and private organizations as well as individuals. The premise for the establishment of this organization is to ensure that all young children in Africa grow up in a safe, healthy, stimulating and happy environment; able to thrive and achieve their full potential.
