Parents and learning institutions have been encouraged to inculcate skills in children at a tender age that enable early childhood development (ECD) pupils to be future entrepreneurs.

The call to instill ECD pupils with entrepreneurial skills came out at a graduation ceremony for preschool children in Chitungwiza.

Guest speaker at the ceremony, Ms Loveness Mainato who is the executive director of Albino Charity Organisation of Zimbabwe said children must not be segregated at school.

Parents who spoke to the ZBC News at the ceremony expressed their desire for preschool children to receive equal treatment and access to resources regardless of their background, skin colour, or disability.

Most ECD schools in the country have embraced the call by the government for inclusivity as well as embracing universal practices despite the children’s status.
