ZINECDA aims at creating an enabling environment for strengthening the capacity of members to strategically engage in key policy and program development process at all levels to influence the improvement of support for holistic development of all infants and young children. ZINECDA has managed to establish chapters in each of the ten provinces of Zimbabwe. 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 in the capital city of Harare 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. ZINECDA complements the efforts by the Government of Zimbabwe by creating a platform where both state and non state actors have common ground and be able to coordinate the work being done throughout the whole country.
