Professor James J. Heckman is the Henry Schultz Distinguished Service Professor of Economics at the University of Chicago, a Nobel Memorial Prize winner in economics and an expert in the economics of human development. Together with a consortium of economists, developmental psychologists, sociologists, statisticians and neuroscientists Heckman has demonstrated that quality early childhood development heavily influences health, economic and social outcomes for individuals and society at large. Heckman has shown that there are great economic gains to be had by investing in early childhood development.
From August 3 – 31, 2017, Tunde Ekpekurede Foundation will be preparing rural kids for primary education. The 4 weeks intensive training addresses self-esteem, mental workouts, play, singing, Montessori education and plenty of fun.
It costs N5,000 per child to do this training. We are looking for persons who can take up training expenses for 1, 2, 5, 10 or more kids.
