The Early Childhood Development Support Program-Bangladesh (ECDSP-B) is a 6-year project designed to strengthen the capacity of ECD programming and to enhance the technical and organizational capacity of DAM and three partner NGOs working on ECD in Bangladesh. The project is being implemented with a view to improving the quality of ECD programs for the children of poor families, innovating quality improvements in those programs and changing the way the partner organizations operate. DAM has been implementing the ECDSP-B Project through partnership with a number of three local organizations which are called as Secondary Civil Society Organizations (SCSOs) in three Upazilas of Barguna District since April 2008.
