Our Mission & Goals

Our Mission

To create a legacy of sustained peace by drawing on the transformative power of positive early childhood development

Our Goals

  1. Build upon the existing Scientific and Clinical Evidence-Base, linking early childhood development (ECD) and sustainable peace building in the global context that can be translated for use in the field
  2. Contribute to a Global Movement valuing the well-being of young children and families as an agent of change in peace building, while focusing on parenting for lifelong health and violence prevention in the home
