Malawi Interactive Radio Instruction Pilot Project

Working in collaboration with Save the Children, EDC is using its existing organizational structures in Blantyre to design and produce a minimum of 10 audio programs as part of an IRI pilot program for strengthening Early Childhood Development (ECD) in Malawi's Community Based Child Care Centers (CBCCs). During the pilot phase, EDC is overseeing the full development of ECD IRI programs; this includes scriptwriting, studio production, collaboration with Save the Children on pilot roll out, and formative evaluation of lessons. This technical assistance is expected to be the initial step in building a larger and longer-term collaborative partnership between Save the Children and EDC to promote higher quality ECD services through the use of cost effective interactive technologies.
