The first five years of your life has everything to do with how you turn out as an adult - literally.
From brain development and good nutrition to play and imagination building, those early years set us up for success in later life. Which is why #5for5, Theirworld’s global campaign is aiming to change how the the world thinks about early childhood development, but we need your help!
That’s why our #5for5 campaign is all about taking small actions, which could have a big impact. It’s all about giving people a way to stand up for children who haven’t quite mastered standing yet.
5 seconds. 5 steps. 5 goals. It’s all #5for5.
And if you’ve got 5 seconds to spare now - share a video (or photo!) of you high-fiving an under-5, and show your support.
How to #5for5
- Film yourself high-fiving a child under five
- Share the video on social media - Facebook, Instagram or Twitter - on Thursday 9 February
- Include a sentence about why you're supporting #5for5
- Make sure you include #5for5 and the link: theirworld.org/5for5
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.
