Funding for charitable organisations in the UK , Kenya or Malawi to support community action for early childhood development that helps children have the best possible start in life and become happy, healthy and confident individuals. The aim of this programme is to support child-centred approaches and to make progress in addressing the comprehensive development need of children during their early years, up to and including their transition to primary school. These child-centred approaches should be based on recognised good practice.

Comic Relief is interested in work that:

  • Adopts the principles of children’s rights to survive and thrive, leaving no child behind, and supporting child-centred and family-centred care and nurturing.
  • Uses a participatory approach at all project stages and values the experience and insights of people who are directly affected by factors that impede early childhood development, including parents, family members and other carers, and communities. Depending on the age group, this can also include children’s views, e.g. through child-to-child approaches.
