An evaluation of the effectiveness of a community-based parenting empowerment program to improve nurturing care of young children in Kenya and Zambia

Maternal and Child Wellbeing

Investing in parents and children during the critical period between birth and five years can have long-lasting benefits in the child’s life. Currently in five African countries, the Moments That Matter® (MTM) Program is an early childhood development (ECD) program partnership of Episcopal Relief & Development aimed at empowering Primary Caregivers through a rural, community-led, integrated nurturing care approach engaging the most vulnerable families with children 0-3 years old.

The African Population and Health Research Center (APHRC) conducted implementation research during a 30-month program period on MTM in Kenya and Zambia – where it is implemented by Episcopal Relief & Development with its long-term partners, the Zambia Anglican Council Outreach Programs (ZACOP) and the Anglican Church of Kenya Development Services – Nyanza (ADS-Nyanza).
