Zimbabwe Network of Early Childhood Development Actors (ZINECDA) is a national umbrella of Early Childhood Development Organizations working in partnership to influence policies, programmes and practice related to Early Childhood Development (ECD) by sharing information on experiences and generating knowledge and understanding of ECD.
The Network was formed so as to bring together players and actors in Early Childhood Development in Zimbabwe. For a long time decisions on ECD were carried out centrally leaving out other players in different provinces of the country. The formation of ZINECDA came at a pivotal moment as most marginalized areas and organizations can now be part of a vibrant network that gives them equal participation in ECD at a provincial level.
Currently ZINECDA has presence in all the ten provinces of Zimbabwe with an elected committee coordinating ECD activities. Quarterly meetings are held to share information, develop strategies, network and identify critical ECD issues for advocacy.
