Keep all children on track by Grade 4

Keep all children on
track by Grade 4

[OPEN FLIGHT GATE 1]

The source of human capital is young children. There is potential for success in every child – even those from the poorest home circumstances.

If children are still ‘on track’ by Grade 4 – if they are able to read and do basic Maths at the expected level – they will generally stay on track to Grade 9 and then successfully complete their schooling.

Keep all children on track by Grade 4

We have identified 4 opportunities to
keep children on track by Grade 4:
 

Opportunity 4 - Give every child the benefit of early childhood development
Opportunity 5 - Stop nutritional stunting among children under two years
Opportunity 6 - Make sure every child is ready to read by the time they go to school
Opportunity 7 - Build simple, loving connections for every child

We support a number of pivotal projects or key partnerships that we believe are, or will in the future, play an important role in keeping children on track by Grade 4.

Although these projects are associated with specific opportunities, they also complement and build on each other.

We also regularly develop articles and resources to make the case for these opportunities, and to support the efforts of those who are working towards achieving them. You will find such articles referenced in projects profiles, or pulled together in our thematic collections.
