A research team from the Centre for Evidence and Social Innovation (CESI) are currently visiting Timor-Leste to help support the development and evaluation of ECD programmes

The research is part of a larger programme of work run by the NIHR Global Health Research Group on Early Childhood Development for Peacebuilding, Queen’s University Belfast that is led by CESI and directed by Professor Paul Connolly

Members of the NIHR Group – Professor Paul Connolly, Dr Laura Dunne and Dr Sarah Miller – along with colleagues from Early Years – The Organisation for Young Children, are spending a week in Timor-Leste working with UNICEF and the Universidade Nacional Timor Lorosa’e (UNTL). They are visiting several early childhood projects and working with partners to explore how they might be enhanced to help promote social cohesion and peacebuilding in the country.

Timor-Leste is one of six partner countries that the NIHR Global Health Research Group are working with. The others are Egypt, Kyrgyzstan, Mali, Tajikistan and Vietnam. Over the next six months, the Group will be working with partners in each of the countries to help design and agree delivery and evaluation plans for ECD programmes.
