90% of the brain develops by the time you’re five. That’s why Theirworld’s global #5for5 campaign is all about those early years. But not all governments are listening and making children's most important years a priority.
But we have a chance to change this: world leaders agreed to support Early Childhood Development for every child as part of the Global Goals.
We just need to make sure they give this commitment the priority it - and the world's children - deserve. Especially for the poorest and most marginalised children.
Can you spare five seconds to support our campaign?
We want to get over 20,000 signatures that we can deliver to world leaders attending major meetings in 2017 and 2018. Sign and share, and help us stand up for those who haven’t yet mastered standing.
The petitionWe call on world leaders to support children under five by backing a new funding initiative - the International Finance Facility for Education (IFFEd) - that will help to pay for quality pre-primary education programmes.
90% of brain development happens before the age of five. Help us raise awareness of early childhood development and put pressure on world leaders to make sure all children have access to quality care including nutrition, health, learning, play and protection.
