2.3 million

Our early childhood development services reach over 2.3 million children.



We operate in 18 countries across Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East and North America.


7.2 million

We reach 7.2 million people through the support of 29,000 civil society organisations.

Singular inputs alone will not do the job – not in the time available, not across the wide spectrum of needs. But if we can work simultaneously and synergistically on several fronts, then progress in one area will spur progress in other areas. The whole can be greater than the sum of its parts.
