Lively Minds is a non-profit organization that aims to give pre-school children (ages 3-6) in resource-poor, rural communities in Ghana and Uganda greater access to education and care. By working through local government – such as kindergarten teachers in Ghana and village health teams in Uganda – Lively Minds trains and empowers mothers to provide better care at home as well as run educational playgroups. The goal of the low-cost program, which relies on local materials, is to ultimately improve the life chances and quality of life of children, parents and the wider community.
We invest in Lively Minds as part of LGT Venture Philanthropy’s education strategy to support solutions which provide high-quality early childhood education and, in turn, increase children’s readiness to start primary school. We provide comprehensive support across three areas:
community teachers trained
community mothers trained
The partnership with LGT Venture Philanthropy will enable us to strengthen our institutional capacity and internal systems to support the delivery of our scale-up plan in Ghana.
