Zero to Five Challenge

Offered by OpenIDEO

The first five years of a child’s life are a crucial time — filled with exciting milestones and innumerable roadblocks. Skills, competencies, health, and habits gained in these early years accompany children into adulthood, and are the fundamental building blocks for living a full life.

Parents and other caregivers play the most influential role in ensuring children have the best possible start in life, but in low-income communities there are substantial barriers to overcome.

This challenge focuses on designing solutions that help parents navigate these obstacles, so that children everywhere not only survive — but thrive — in their early years.
