African Early Childhood Conference
August 28, 2002
It is best to act with confidence, no matter how little right you have to it.
-Lillian Hellman

Alan Pence from the University of Victoria has asked us to share information about the Second African International Early Childhood Development Conference taking place in Asmara, Eritrea on October 28 - 31, 2002. The conference, with a theme of "Integrated Early Childhood Interventions: What Works and Experiences Learned," seeks to identify advances made in early childhood development, and hopes to address the challenges faced by developing nations in the struggle to realize the rights of a child to develop in a holistic manner. The conference will be organized across three thematic areas which focus on the need of integrated, low cost, diversified, and community-based early interventions. The thematic areas include early childhood education, health and nutrition, and orphans and vulnerable children. The conference is co-sponsored by the State of Eritrea, UNICEF, and the World Bank. For more information about the conference contact Ms. Yordi Seium at yseium@worldbank.org.
