Early Care International was founded in 2021 with the aim to improve the lives of children and youth.
In 2012, the idea to found Early Care International started taking shape. Back then, we provided financial support to a few households with children and families. However, we gradually realised that it is vital to engage as an organisation to impact a greater number of families. We also understood the strength of collaboration amongst key stakeholders to act collectively on issues important to the community. Thus, in 2021 Early Care International was established.
Currently Early Care International is working to address the needs of children and youth in various contexts. To this end we work with issues related to the wellbeing of children and youth such as healthcare, education, psychosocial support, nurturing care, safety and security and employment opportunities.
The team at Early Care International consists of people with solid academic and professional work experience in the development sector for over ten years. We have several years of work and life experience in Denmark and Ethiopia.
Inger has a background as a consultant working with Danish municipalities, educational sector, ministries and ngo’s with a focus on the social sector. Recently she was a part of building the NGO De Anbragtes Vilkår as a professional organization. Currently living in South Korea there is time for volunteer work.
As a volunteer Inger is contributing with developing a strategy for the next stages of our organization.
We aim to contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Through our work at Early Care International, we aim to achieve holistic and equitable development programmes for children and youth.
Several studies indicate that investing in the early years can eliminate extreme poverty and create the human capital
needed for economies to grow.
Investing in the early years under the age of five allows children to reach their full developmental potential.
Access to quality early childhood education improves the chance of landing high-skill jobs.
Peaceful and inclusive societies where there are strong institutions are important to make sustainable changes
The success of development programmes for children and youth depends on collaboration and partnerships.
