“Abu Dhabi Early Childhood Authority (ECA) is a government entity that supports our government partners to help all of Abu Dhabi’s young children flourish. The responsibility of guiding Abu Dhabi into the future rests on the shoulders of the current and future generations of children. We must make sure that the next generation grows up healthy, educated, and contributes as citizens and residents to the city of Abu Dhabi. These young children will take the nation forward in the next fifty years,” – H.E Dr Yousef Al Hammadi, Executive Director, Knowledge & Impact Sector.
In collaboration with SAS, Abu Dhabi Early Childhood Authority (ECA) launched its Abu Dhabi Child Insights System Program, the first of its kind in the Middle East to collect cross sectoral government data for the purpose of creating data-driven insights that introduce better policies leading to positive social impacts in Abu Dhabi.
ECA is a purpose-driven governmental organization that was established to provide children with the right ecosystem to enable them to become valuable members of society responsible for guiding Abu Dhabi into the future. ECA achieves this by promoting collaboration to help all of Abu Dhabi’s young children flourish – from the early stages of pregnancy until the children are eight years old – and does this across four pillars: health and nutrition; child protection; family support; and early education and care.
