Greetings WASH friends and partners! One month into the new year, we have three important updates for you, including the launch of our 2017 WASH annual review, materials from a recent webinar on early childhood development, and a prestigious award received by World Vision Niger. Happy reading! 

What we learned in WASH in 2017

Since launching our rapid scaleup of water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) programmes in 2010, World Vision has been learning and adapting as rapidly as we have been scaling up. This annual report not only celebrates the immense progress we have made in the 2017 fiscal year, it also shares the remarkable things we have learned this year on our journey of continuous improvement. View the report.

Webinar recap: Why Do Early Moments Matter?

There is a growing recognition that nurturing, protecting, promoting and supporting children in their early years is essential for the transformation that the world seeks to achieve guided by the Sustainable Development Goals.  The Lancet series Advancing early childhood development: from science to scale (2016) highlighted the importance of nurturing care in the first 1,000 days – from conception to age two – as the foundation for child development. The series emphasized that ‘nurturing care’ – an indivisible cluster of interventions related to health, nutrition, responsive caregiving, safety and security, and early learning – is the foundation for child development. The way mothers, fathers and other caregivers nurture and support children in the first 1000 days is among the most decisive factors for healthy child development, with lifelong and intergenerational benefits for health, productivity and social cohesion.  

Through mutually accountable partnerships between relevant sectors – health, nutrition, social protection, child protection, education, and environmental health – Nurturing Care kindles common action and promotes common results through country leadership. This presentation focuses on a roadmap for scaling-up programmes for children, drawing on the science in “Early Moments Matter for Every Child”.
