Happy children means happy mothers
Angelina is a 30-year-old mother, married at 15, she has seven children aged between 16 and 15 months. Her husband was killed, leaving her solely responsible over the whole family.
Angelina and her 3-year-old daughter, Daisy, are both HIV+ Daisy attends the ECD and is doing extremely well. With the responsibility of raising 7 children, which can be economically draining, Angelina is relieved that Daisy is being taken care of and supported educationally.
The ECD plays an imperative role in the development and security of the children. The question that is predominantly on the mothers’ minds is, what becomes of their children when they require further education out of the ECD?
This case typically resonates with the way these people live their lives. The belief that the more children you acquire, the richer you are in the future. Without, appreciating that education and sustainability are required for economic empowerment.
