Early childhood development is considered to be a very important phase in determining the quality of health, well-being, learning and behavior throughout life. Family, social, community and relational environments in which children grow strongly influence who they become. A lack of individual, social and financial resources among mothers, particularly during early pregnancy, can weaken the general environment and jeopardize a child’s development.
Children Action has set up programs targeting the prevention of child development problems, promoting protective factors for strengthening family units to ensure the well-being of at-risk children.
