Media engagement in promoting integrated ECD services

On November 22nd 2019, we concluded a four day training of journalists to promote integrated #ECD, Nutrition and  #WASH services in #Rwanda.

A total of 43 participants came from public, private and community media of Radio, TV, print News Detailsonline and social media.

Topics of training were early stimulation and early learning, positive parenting and child protection, mothers and children's nutrition, health and #WASH as well as the National Social and Behavior Change Communication Strategy for Integrated ECD, Nutrion and WASH.

During the training, journalists did field reportage to witness realities on the ground and produced stories for publication and broadcasting.

One of the key recommendations of this training was to create a network of journalists reporting on integrated ECD services and make it professionally functional.

We are grateful to #EU for the support to make this training a success.
