LA TOUR KOENIG DAYCARE CENTRE

Goal of the Daycare Centre

Gender equality is fundamental to the achievement of full employment and economic growth, reinforcement of social protection and poverty eradication. Entangled with their reproductive roles, women find difficulties in joining employment because of lack of facilities that are made available to them. In response to this concern, MFPWA has strategically positioned itself in this region for more than twenty years through the provision of child daycare as well as family planning services in this depressed area. Today, the La Tour Koenig Daycare Centre has adopted an integrated approach to provide daycare, babysitting facilities as well as SRH services to mothers working in the industrial sector.
