The Ilifa Labantwana One Pager provides a succinct overview of the programme, framing the problem it seeks to address and how it intends to do this, by: defining an Essential Package of ECD services; offering support to provinces and district councils to deliver ECD at scale; helping to develop the systems and personnel needed for a nation-wide scaling-up process; motivating for appropriate financing models to be instituted; stimulating public demand for ECD through a national campaign; and building a compelling body of research evidence on the benefits of ECD. Finally, it states clearly the goals Ilifa hopes to achieve by the end of its second Phase in 2016.
