ADDRO educates religious leaders about the importance of child safety and development. The Tamale Anglican Diocese’s development arm, the Anglican Diocesan Development and Relief Organization (ADDRO), has developed the capacity of Christian and Muslim religious leaders to serve as advocates for the protection and development of children in the Northern Region.
The goal of the three-day training program was for attendees to gain a better knowledge of what the Bible and the Quran teach regarding child rights, rearing, and corporal punishment.
It was also intended to educate participants on the benefits of child discipline as opposed to punishment and abuse, with the goal of promoting healthy families and communities.
The workshop, which was held in Tamale as part of ADDRO’s Integrated Early Childhood Development (IECD) Programme, brought together participants from the Karaga District in the Northern Region.
The IECD Program, which is being implemented in eight communities in the Karaga District, aims to build the capacities of caregivers, including male caregivers, in various parenting skills and development around cognitive, socio-emotional, communication, and other aspects of child development, particularly for children aged zero to three years, through home visits and monthly caregiver group support and learning.
In his remarks to the attendees, Mr. Emmanuel Tia Nabila, Executive Director of ADDRO, stated that male caregivers should support their female counterparts in the parenting of their children in order to ensure their growth and development.
He emphasized the importance of religious leaders putting in place effective procedures to ensure that parents in their communities took adequate care of their children.
The IECD Program, according to Mr. John Patrick Atampugre, ADDRO’s Northern Regional Coordinator, consists of Early Childhood Development (ECD) and Savings With Education (SWE) modules.
He stated that the ECD Program produced a nurturing pre-school atmosphere for children’s healthy growth and development.
He claimed that since 2019, 120 ECD promoters have been trained and are currently educating caregivers on the ECD initiative.
Mr Atampugre explained, “The SWE intervention is a model where women are supported through training on how to save and also borrow from their savings with low-interest rates determined by the caregiver group themselves to either start their own business or meet the emergency needs of their children and family as a whole.”
He also mentioned that the SWE has an educational component, with representatives from the Karaga District Health Directorate giving health-related presentations to carers.
