ZANEC is an education advocacy organization in Zambia. ZANEC recognizes the importance of Early Childhood Care and Development Education (ECDE) as a key towards promoting and protecting children’s right to survival, growth, development and participation.

At the same time in order for Zambia to attain the EFA goal on “expanding and improving comprehensive early childhood care and education, especially for the most vulnerable and disadvantaged children”, it is important that the country scales up its current efforts on the promotion of access and participation in the ECDE subsector. Therefore, ZANEC plans to holds government accountable by lobbying for direct involvement in the delivery of ECDE services as well as the need for a speedy adoption of an appropriate ECDE policy.
 
To achieve this ZANEC is proposing to engage government on the need for investing in the ECDE subsector. It plans to do so by supporting the advocacy initiatives around the involvement of government in the direct investment and delivery of ECDE services, carrying out consultative foras for the finalization of the ECDE Policy, Media based advocacy on ECDE both on television and radio, and Conduct budget tracking of ECDE Expenditures.
