We are your children

the Kushanda early childhood education and care dissemination programme (Zimbabwe, 1985 - 1993)

Salih Booker



The Kushanda Project takes its name from the Shona expression, Kushandisa zviripo, which means 'to use what is there', or, 'to make what is there work.' This saying not only captures the Project's spirit of self reliance, but also the fact that for the children of Zimbabwe's rural majority, early childhood services were only likely to become accessible if their parents learned how to use the material and Human Resources available in the immediate environment to make community based pre-schools in reality. Kushanda's mission was to show how this could be done.
