“A baby on a mother’s back does not know the way is long.” – African proverb

In Mozambique many mothers wrap and carry their babies with them while they go about their day. Apart from being safe and comfortable, the closeness of a wrapped baby to its mother supports attachment and stimulates learning. Below is a clip of how babies are wrapped in Mozambique, the piece was shot and edited by eTV/Learning Technologies on a recent trip to Africa in support of the Science of ECD multimedia resource

The Long Reach of Early Childhood

February 6, 2015

More than 200 million children under five years fail to reach their potential in cognitive development because of poverty, poor health and nutrition, and lack of early stimulation.

The Long Reach of Early Childhood, recently produced by eTV and the SECD project team, highlights many of the efforts that are being undertaken around the world to help support parents and communities to raise healthy children and improve our collective future. The video features some of our best footage, taken in Asia, Africa, Latin America and Canada.
