CHADET’s work on education focuses on promoting Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) and the provision of support for children at primary and secondary level of education with a focus on girls’ education.


Even though significant success has been achieved by the government of Ethiopia in all areas of education, especially in the enrolment of children at primary level of education, highly vulnerable children still have difficulties to access Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE). In the urban centers where there are privately owned ECCEs, most families from the lower income bracket are not able to afford the high amount of fees required for enrollment. Hence many children are staying at home or attend informal literacy and numeracy sessions operated by individuals in their neighborhoods who are willing to assist such children.

Under its ECCE program, CHADET has been able to set-up and furnishing of ECCE centers where thousands of vulnerable children who have limited or no access to ECCE, especially for children from low-income households, are enrolled. It trains facilitators and provided scholastic materials for vulnerable children. Over 2,000 children have accessed the services and were able to transit to primary, secondary and college level of education over the past few years.


CHADET is a charitable organisation registered in Ethiopia (Reg. no. 0234) that works for the protection and welfare of children found under difficult circumstances.
