ARNEC has four strategic goals which define the outcomes we want to achieve by the end of 2020. The strategic goals signify our purpose as a network. They illustrate what the Network will strategically focus on to enable ARNEC to bring about lasting and positive change in Early Childhood Development in the region. All are interconnected; they are essential for the impact we wish to have in every country and in our network.
Improve advocacy for holistic and inclusive ECD
ARNEC will continue to engage policy makers and key stakeholders including members, advocating the holistic nature of ECD in policies and programmes, and the strong interlinkages of SDG Target 4.2 with the rest of the SDGs.
Increase knowledge-base on ECD
ARNEC will work with partners to generate and consolidate new knowledge through research, documentation of good practices and the development of ECD tools and other resources.
Increase strategic partnership not just partnership; membership not just membership
ARNEC will encourage more institutional and individual members ensuring full participation from highly diverse partners and members including research institutions, universities, corporation, and foundations.
Strengthen ARNEC's reach and impact at the country level
ARNEC will form and/or strengthen linkages and broaden partnerships with national level ECD networks and associations.
