As part of the Early Childhood Development Awareness Week, 1 – 8 June, the Centre for Early Childhood Development (CECD) is hosting a celebratory event on Tuesday 6 June, from 15h00 to 17h00 at the Cape Peninsula Organisation for the Aged (.) Centre in Gugulethu. At the event the new HIV/Aids booklet will be launched for ECD practitioners, entitled “Supporting Children Infected and Affected By HIV and Aids: A Guide for Early Childhood Development (ECD) Centres”. Translated into five languages (Afrikaans, Xhosa, Sepedi, Setswana and English), this valuable resource will be distributed by the Centre for Early Childhood Development to ECD centres around the country free of charge. This booklet was funded by the Foundation for Human Rights, which in turn is funded by the European Union under the European Programme for Reconstruction and Development.
