A child's capacity to realise their full potential is largely dependent on the first five years of their existence. According to research, children who experience poverty and all of its after effects such as hunger, health issues, instability, and violence in the home and community are more likely to experience these risks throughout their lives. Early childhood development and schooling are also shown to have a significant impact on future well-being. Inadequate early childhood development affects not only children but also society at large in the long run. Similarly, when kids have access to sufficient food, medical attention, safety, and play and learning opportunities, entire communities gain.
