Ilifa Labantwana released the third issue of their Ilifa Insights magazine this week. In this issue the relationship between the parent – or the primary caregiver – and the child is explored. Neuroscientist Barak Morgan explains the effects of an adverse external environment on the architecture of the brain, and the impact of interventions on caregivers’ brains, and their consequent behaviour.
Ilifa’s implementing partners each discuss the ways in which their interventions attempt to mitigate the adverse environmental influences directed at the parent and the impact this has on her relationship with her child and the child’s development. Featuring the work of:
- the Sinovuyo Caring Families project;
- Philani Mentor Mothers;
- inclusive ECD hubs;
- the FCM home visiting programme in North West; and
- the First 1000 Days early attachment support tool.
