The Knowledge Channel Foundation, Inc. (KCFI) strengthens its Early Childhood Development (ECD) advocacy by providing strong, research-based educational videos to schools and helping fund a global study on parenting and early childhood to boost the morale of parents, teachers, and childcare workers across Asia.
KCFI has been steadfast in its efforts to provide strong guidance on ECD through the provision of Portable Media Libraries to different schools and communities nationwide. Teachers, parents, and caregivers can learn at home from Knowledge Channel educational video lessons such as "Heroes of Zero," “ILY1000: Batang #Laking1000”, and "TalkED: Early Childhood Series with Bianca Gonzalez,” which are all available on Knowledge Channel’s Facebook and Youtube pages, iWantTFC and the Kapamilya Channel.
“We know how important it is to invest in our children, not just for their own personal success but for the success of the nation. We have launched various shows and conducted different initiatives for ECD nationwide,” said KCFI president and executive director, Rina Lopez.
KCFI recently supported an ECD research project led by the Asia Philanthropy Circle, which discussed the barriers to the proper implementation of ECD policies and programs.
This groundbreaking study highlighted the alarming lack of information and resources for early childhood development and education, particularly in the rural region. The study shed light on the rise of malnutrition and stunting which may be due to lack of information on proper nutrition and child health. It is also the first of its kind and the most comprehensive mapping to date of parenting and early childhood programs across Asia, with a particular focus on China, Singapore, Indonesia, and the Philippines.
As KCFI continues to advance its ECD advocacy, it is actively seeking partnerships with companies, organizations, and Child Development Centers that share the goal of empowering young Filipino learners to become changemakers and positively transform society.
