Organisation summary: The Open Society Early Childhood Program promotes the healthy development and well-being of young children through initiatives that emphasize parent and community engagement, professional development, and government accountability. The program's rights-based approach and social justice framework pays particular attention to the development challenges faced by children who are members of minority groups, children with developmental delays, malnutrition and disabilities; and children living in poverty. The Open Society Foundations implement early childhood programs in select countries in Africa, Asia, Central and Eastern Europe, the Commonwealth of Independent States, Latin America, and the Middle East and North Africa. Launched in 1994, the program seeks to increase the quality, access, and comprehensiveness of early childhood services for all children, particularly for disadvantaged children, through a strategy focusing on four areas: improving public policies and programs; building the capacity of childhood development professionals and civil society; achieving equity through early childhood development; and implementing monitoring and accountability activities.
