Early Childhood Engagement for Lifelong Learning

Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL)

From conception to five years of age, early childhood is an extremely important period for cognitive and psychosocial development. Children’s high levels of brain plasticity and neurogenesis make them especially receptive to external stimuli. Young children’s minds are still learning how to learn, and simple play activities that stimulate the brain through all the senses can help improve their ability to think, communicate, and connect with others. Research from around the world suggests that guaranteeing such early childhood stimulation is critical.

Adolescent Girls Empowerment Program (AGEP): Mid-Term Findings

Population Council

Social isolation, economic vulnerability, and lack of access to health care and education prevent healthy transitions from childhood to adulthood, especially for vulnerable adolescent girls in developing countries.

Instead, the Industrial Internet helps us do extremely important things like stabilize the power grid, help hospitals track their equipment or remotely monitor a rail fleet.

Every year, roughly 14 million girls are married before their 18th birthday. Instead of playing and learning, child brides as young as 10 years old are often subjected to a life of isolation, poor health and abuse.
