Our center works with some of the world’s leading non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and with governments in low-income (LI) and conflict-affected (CA) countries to develop and evaluate innovative approaches to promoting holistic development of children and their communities.


In all of our projects we aim to generate actionable evidence, communicate and disseminate this evidence, and build capacity of researchers, practitioners, and policy makers working to improve children’s development globally.
