Shaping the learning journey

The first five years are critical to a child’s future. This is the window of opportunity within which 90% of human brain is formed, behaviours and attitudes can be changed and a path to prosperity (or lack of) is created. Millions of children, especially those from poor households often bear the impact of adversities and stress on their development.

This program focuses on children that are at risk of missing the most important foundational basics in their early years. It addresses the root of lifelong disparities in learning, behaviour, and health.

We seek to improve the quality of both early childhood teaching and learning, through the development of innovative curricula and research-based pedagogical standards, as well as the design of imaginative play materials and learning environments. These interventions are meant to make the children acquire the basic skills early in life.

The program also creates awareness among parents and society at large about the negative effect violence, abuse, neglect and malnutrition has on a child’s development and future life chances. We provide expert master classes and parenting events to empower parents to raise confident, respectful, healthy and successful children.

The 1st 1000 days campaign

The first thousand days is the most critical stage in a person’s life because this is the window of opportunity within which the foundation of the brain, body, immune system and overall development takes place. Behaviors and attitudes can be changed and a path to prosperity is created. According to WHO, 43% of children younger than 5 years in low- and middle-income countries are at risk of not achieving their developmental potential mainly due to poverty.

We conduct the 1st 1000 days campaign targeted at mothers and caregivers of children aged 0-3 years across slums and rural areas. The campaign creates awareness among parents and society at large about the negative effect violence, abuse and neglect has on a child’s development and future life chances. Through this campaign participants are empowered with knowledge and skills needed to support their children in all critical developmental milestones and prepare them for school.
