If we want to truly shape the future, we have 1,000 days to do it.
No child deserves to be malnourished.
Yet millions are at risk.
The first 1,000 days of life are critical to a childs survival - and physical and mental development. What happens during this unique period, determines to a large extent a childs future.
Safe drinking water, good sanitation, improved hygiene practices and nutrition in a childs first 1,000 days is key to their ability to physically grow, the development of their brain and their on-going health.
But there are countless children suffering from stunted growth - the profound, lifelong and irreversible consequence of inadequate nutrition and poor sanitation.
When babies don't receive adequate nutrition they become malnourished, children that simply fail to grow. Stunted girls then become stunted mothers who in turn often give birth to low-weight babies. The cycle of malnourishment and stunting continues through future generations, trapping them into a cycle of poverty, illness and limited potential.
You can help us to transform life for thousands of vulnerable infants by helping to provide safe drinking water, good sanitation and nutrition in a childs first 1,000 days.
Help make sure every child has the chance to reach their amazing potential, and create a brighter future for themselves and their families.
