IREAD has built 9 ECD Centres in Chitral Pakistan - see Inaugurated Schools & Updates
In Uganda, IREAD has opened two new ECD Resource Centres (Kayunga & Nyai) and two ECD Centres without the resource seminar facility ( Lobule and Wani). These centres were inaugurated in 2015.
The centres were designed by a local architect in consultation with the Madrassa Early Childhood Program Uganda (MECPU) team in Kampala, Uganda. The design allows for activity-based learning by children of varying ages and has the adaptability to be partitioned for age-appropriate instruction. The Seminar Rooms at the Resource Centre can seat over 30 teachers who wish to upgrade their teaching skills in a modern & functioning ECD Centre.

The teacher training and ongoing evaluation, monitoring and professional development of these teachers will be contracted to the MECPU of the Aga Khan Foundation which is a certificate - granting accredited institution. The teachers who undergo the 2 year training will be able to sit for the diploma in ECD drom the Makerere University.
