This Event has Concluded.

Read the comments below!

For children born into poverty, early childhood interventions hold the promise of overcoming social disadvantages and breaking the cycle of poverty between generations. Join President Kim and a panel of experts LIVE at 11:30 AM EST on Monday, November 2, to explore ways for the World Bank to more fully engage to meet the needs of young children and their families. As we work to meet the Sustainable Development Goals related to child well-being and gender equality, now is the moment to find ways we can help these children move beyond surviving to thriving.

This event is hosted by the Independent Evaluation Group (IEG). Related IEG Evaluations: World Bank Support to Early Childhood Development, Later Impacts of Early Childhood Interventions: A Systematic Review.
