Every child deserves the best start in life

90% of a child's brain develops in the first five years of life, yet early childhood education is woefully underfunded.

To give every child the best start in life, world leaders must ensure early childhood education gets 10% of their education budget.

Theirworld works around the world to ensure that every child has the best start in life, a safe place to learn and skills for the future. 

To unlock big change we combine the power of public campaigns, policy and advocacy and innovative on-the-ground projects. We work with partners all around the world, and with more than 1,000 Global Youth Ambassadors in every continent to deliver our campaigns at grassroots.

We know that to end the global education crisis we're going to need everyone to do their part, join our campaigns, and help build the pressure needed to make change.
