Eighty per cent of brain development happens in the first three years of a child’s life. World Vision’s Early Childhood Development programmes are unique because we take a holistic approach to education and integrate nutrition, health and economic development work to bolster children’s learning skills.

World Vision’s Early Childhood Development Centre in the Afghani village of Kabarzan is providing opportunities for the community like:

  • Learning to read and write for more than 30 children
  • Developing good health habits to prevent the spread of disease
  • Skill training for mothers, who also learn about women's rights and the detrimental effects of child marriage, which are all too common in the region
