Mother Support Program
The Mother Support Program (MSP) aims to support, through education, mothers’ efforts in their capacity as the shapers of a child’s development and the closest to a child; to contribute to their parenting skills. Through the MSP we provide mothers with children in the 3-11 age group with information and support about child-rearing and development issues. A course typically lasts 12-13 weeks. Class sizes are normally 20-25 people. Topics covered in the program consist of the role of the family in child development; children’s cognitive, physical, emotional and social development; toilet training; school, family, and community relationships. Topics exclusive to mothers include reproductive health, birth control, breast cancer, and sexually transmitted diseases.
