The Conrad N. Hilton Foundation and Aga Khan University Deliver SECD Course September 11 2015

As part of an initiative to help support young children affected by HIV and AIDS, The Hilton Foundation has partnered with Aga Khan University to deliver the Science of Early Child Development course to 16 of their partner organizations working in Malawi, Mozambique, Kenya, Tanzania and Zambia.

Pedro Maunde, ECD Project Manager at CARE International participated in the SECD Seminar in Nairobi and then completed the online course in “Early Human Development: An Interdisciplinary Approach” offered by the Institute for Human Development, Aga Khan University in partnership with Red River College.

“Honestly, I gained a lot of knowledge in each SECD component. The course allowed me to understand deeply how to contribute to life-long health and well-being for human beings before and after birth, particularly, orphaned and vulnerable children in Mozambique.”

Maunde is responsible for the overall management and coordination of the early childhood development initiative in Mozambique.
