Safe and Healthy Start, Grow Smart

Safe and Healthy Start, Grow Smart (SHSGS) is a curriculum initiative by Save the Children Fiji (SCF) to raise the safety, health and nutritional status of young children living in disadvantaged and informal communities. The SHSGS is a curriculum guide which complements the Na Noda Mataniciva – Kindergarten Curriculum Guidelines for the Fiji Islands using a rights-based approach. Primarily, it is intended to be used by educators, teachers and community workers in these communities. Education is the right of any child, irrespective of their ethnicity, gender, religion or socio-economic status. Save the Children Fiji recognise this right and work towards ensuring every child has a quality start in life. This initiative is at the forefront of making a difference to the lives of children and their families in Fiji.
