Early Childhood Development: Overview of World Vision Programmes

Early childhood experiences have a profound impact on brain development, which serves as the foundation for all subsequent learning, behaviour, and health outcomes. 80% of the brain develops in the first three years of life, but this development can be interrupted if a child is poorly nourished and nurtured, if she/he is not stimulated properly, or if she/he is not protected from violence.

To support children in reaching their full potential, World Vision Jerusalem - West Bank - Gaza implements a comprehensive Early Childhood Development programme that directly benefited 22,000 children in 2022.
