A weekly NewsFlash with timely tips, news, resources, and ideas to help African communities take it forward! DSC_4328

Let’s promote and value play-time!

Playing is fun and also helps children reach important developmental milestones like learning mathematical thinking, problem solving and social skills. In this week’s NewsFlash we are sharing some tips on using play to help children grow healthy and strong.

What you’ll find in this week’s NewsFlash…

1.  Overview of the importance of play

2.  3 posters each in English and isiZulu about play, communication and grieving from Firelight partner Dlalanathi (meaning play with us) in South Africa

3.  A publication by the Action Alliance for Children, Play in the Early Years: Key to School Success

Plus, a few timely funding opportunities from RESURJ- Africa Feminist Dialogue and USAID Funds for Vulnerable Population in Rwanda.
