On January 1st of this year, global leaders adopted the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), ratified by the United Nations as the overarching and guiding framework for development over the next 15 years. Target 4.2 of the SDGs states, “By 2030, ensure that all girls and boys have access to quality early childhood development (ECD) care and pre-primary education so that they are ready for primary education.” The Conrad N. Hilton Foundation has been working in this area since the initial launch of our five-year Children Affected by HIV and AIDS Strategic Initiative in 2012.
