Company Profile

Lively Minds is an award-winning NGO working to get preschoolers in rural Ghana & Uganda school-ready. Over 250 million children under 5 years globally do not get the early childhood care and education they need, leading to poor health, poor education, lost life opportunities and poverty. We believe that one of the main barriers to ECCE is that parents in remote resource-poor villages lack the information, education and aspiration to provide basic and affordable opportunities for their children.

We have developed an innovative behavior-change programme that empowers marginalized, poorly educated mothers to run educational Play Schemes for preschoolers and to provide better home-based care, using cheap local resources. Not only does this result in positive outcomes for child development, but also has positive impacts for the mothers too.

These are exciting times for Lively Minds. In Ghana, we are finalising a partnership agreement with Ministry of Education and Ghana Education Service to integrate the programme in to the national kindergarten system and to support them to scale it across 60 rural districts in the northern regions of the country, reaching approximately 4,000 kindergartens and 1.1 million children. Our programme in Uganda is in a test and preparation for scale stage. We are currently optimising the model so that it can be delivered through local government systems, with the long-term aim of national roll-out.
