Parental engagement in children’s education is the key to success

When Save the Children’s Remote Early Learning project started in her village in 2018, Ms. Sali was invited to join the trainings and workshops. She participated in all the project activities and gained a great deal of knowledge related to the benefits of her children’s education, especially children between the ages of three and five. After learning more, she understood that attending preschool and actively supporting young children’s development is extremely important for a variety of reasons, like helping children to develop a strong foundation before they enter primary school. Ms. Sali is now aware of the interconnected benefits of supporting and fostering young children’s mental, physical, social, emotional and psychosocial development.
