Despite the constraints of child rights implementation in Mwanza Tanzania, Amani Girls Home (AGH) intends to enhance quality of pre-primary education and prepare children for primary education in Mwanza fishing communities through holistic and community driven Early Childhood Development (ECD) programs. The program aims to empower women in microfinance programs to support their children's education and home life with the focus of improving health care, early learning, nutrition, protection and social outcomes of young children. AGH also works to build community and institutional capacity to correctly interpret and use available child policies, laws and frameworks for implementing holistic ECD programs. AGH will use a life circle approach involving all community actors through their daily activities to positively support the implementation of a holistic ECD program. The goal is to fast-track the process by which all children in Mwanza fishing communities have access to contextually and culturally holistic ECD services necessary for them to thrive and physically develop to their full potential.

Amani Girls Home uses an ecological model approach which utilizes an ECD circle of influence. This involves many actors, including the private sector and public sector and CSOs and individuals within the community. Together, these actors address the importance of quality holistic ECD service provision and spark changes within the community toward ECD practice and service provision in Mwanza fishing communities. AGH inclusively and radically collaborates with local ECD stakeholders, LGAs, District Council leaders, political leaders and the wider system in Ilemela, Nyamagana and Sengerema districts to ensure that all girls and boys have access to quality early childhood development care and pre-primary education.
