Early Life and Education
Early life and education are critical periods of growth and development. They impact a child’s emotional, social and physical well-being, their ability to learn, their school performance and even their health outcomes.
In the US, early childhood education and care (ECEC) programmes for 0-8 year olds are provided through a range of initiatives, including publically funded programs such as Head Start, state or local government subsidies for private, licensed childcare, and home providers. A key aim of ECEC is to ensure that children are ready for primary schooling so that they have the skills and knowledge necessary to succeed at school and in their adult lives.
Early learning is also linked to school achievement, fewer grade retentions and reduced incidences of juvenile delinquency. Research supports this view, and states have made important advances in adopting policies that support high-quality classroom practices.
Fr John Bashobora is a priest from Uganda, widely known for his prayer, deliverance and healing ministry. He travels the world preaching the Good News and delivering the healing power of the Holy Spirit to those in need.
He has built orphanages, founded schools and now heads the Catholic Charismatic Renewal in the Archdiocese of Mbarara, Uganda, where he has become famous for extra ordinary acts such as miracle crusades. He also sponsors students’ education.
During his school days, Fr Bashobora was a disciplined child who would never indulge in bad behaviour such as drinking alcohol and smoking. He would wake up early to get to school in time and he would often lead prayers at home.
