The company is a non-profit organization that ensures that the children registered in ECD Centers get proper early screening, assessment and intervention services at the community level. A plan to achieve this will be through skills development and job creation for unemployed youth as CHW trained to benefit infants and young children on communication, emergent literacy, and listening stimulation. Early Childhood Hearing Assessment Centre is a company that will exist in its own right, separately from its members.

We want to ensure that all girls and boys have access to quality early childhood development, care and pre-primary education to be ready for primary education. The organization aims to reduce the burden of childhood developmental disorders and support the existing ECD centers to promote nurturing, stimulating, and learning environment for children under 5years. It is in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) mandate that promotes systematic monitoring of the health and wellbeing of all children to achieve optimal early childhood development. We intend to contribute to children's broader health status beyond survival through actions to monitor children younger than 5 years to reach their developmental potential in health, education, and psychosocial wellbeing, disaggregated by disability, age, sex, geographic location, and other characteristics. However, we as the country fall in the category of very little or scarce epidemiological data on children with developmental disabilities due to a shortage of skilled professionals to conduct such studies.
