Knowledge goods to support ongoing and planned Reach Up implementations
Welcome to our portal
The knowledge goods were developed in collaboration with members of the Reach Up Global Community which was formed following a 3-day Knowledge Exchange Meeting in October 2019, with the support of LEGO Foundation. The meeting bought together academics and country representatives and programme implementers from the Reach Up sites in the various countries where the programme has been implemented (Bangladesh, Bolivia, Brazil, China, Colombia, Guatemala, India, Jamaica, Jordan, Kenya, Lebanon, Madagascar, Peru, Syria, Turkey and Zimbabwe).
Representatives from LEGO and other international agencies involved in early childhood development, such as the World Bank Group, Child Fund and Inter-American Development Bank, were also present at the meeting.
