Executive Summary

Research has proven that nurturing care during the first 1000 days of a child's life is crucial for healthy brain development. Yet, each year, over 250 million children are deprived of loving care and fail to reach their full potential physically, cognitively, emotionally and socially. Lack of quality early care significantly undermines their future educational prospects, heath, and prosperity and the social and economic growth of their communities and their countries. OneSky educates women in low-resource communities across Asia to establish high-quality early childhood programs that set children ages 0-3 to succeed in school and in life. The training, consisting of in-person and distance learning modules, will be scaled from a training hub in Hong Kong. The project will provide local women a chance to develop a professional skill and young mothers an opportunity to find work thus lifting families out of poverty and boosting local economies.
