Our Team Meet the People Behind FOCUS1000

The first 1000 days of a child's life, is a period which is often referred to as the golden window of opportunity. Investments made during this period have an everlasting impact on the child’s likelihood to survive, thrive, and become a productive member of society. All our programmes, studies and activities contribute to our focus and ethos which aims to exercise the potential of this period in every child's life.
