The Project will support the establishment of new ECD facilities in unserved areas to enhance equitable access to ECD services. Unserved and underserved areas, and gaps in ECD provision, will be identified through a comprehensive mapping of ECD facilities and distribution of the 3-5 year old population. In the underserved areas identified through the mapping exercise, the Project will support the extension of existing state- and community-run ECD centers to expand enrollment. The selection of beneficiary centers in these areas will be done jointly by the ECD officers, PCs and local government authorities.
