  • Policy brief

The early years of a child’s life are crucial for their health and development. However, many children in Nairobi’s informal settlements grow up in environments that do not support their optimal development. As more women enter the workforce, the need for affordable and quality childcare becomes critical. The lack of such childcare options often keeps women out of the workforce and negatively impacts their productivity. Moreover, children who do not receive adequate care face significant challenges in their development.
