Children’s First Years are a Critical Period for Life-Long Wellbeing

A child’s earliest years present a window of opportunity to address inequality and improve outcomes later in life. The World Bank’s Early Learning Partnership (ELP) works closely with country governments and World Bank country teams in Africa and across regions to promote investments in the early years and support early learning and early childhood development. The ELP is launching the Africa Early Years Fellowship to support increased investments and opportunities for young children.
