The first seven years of a child’s life determine his future.
The more stimulation a young brain receives, the greater the acquisition of language, problem solving abilities, numeracy, motor skills, reading and writing needed for success in school and beyond.
Adequate nutrition, support, and stimulation can ensure that not one child goes to bed hungry or drops out of school because they weren’t school-ready.
Quality ECD programmes like Berakah are beneficial to instill a life-long love for learning in the hearts and minds of young children.
When children don’t have access to early childhood development interventions, the impact upon the next generation of school-going children is staggering. It’s a downward spiral that can be interrupted by the work of organisations, just like Berakah.
Early education changes everything!
