Children physical activity before age 5 matters so much because of the developing brain.

Impacts of ECD PROGRAMS?

Early Childhood Development (ECD) programs have the potential to greatly affect an individual’s physical health, including issues such as obesity, stunting and heart disease, mental health, literacy and numeracy skills, criminality, and economic participation throughout his/her life. CenRID's My Childhood My Future (MCMF) project seeks to address these issues and ultimately increase the perinatal and child survival in Eastern Uganda.
