Childhood Matters.

Notions of childhood may vary but we all agree that Childhood matters. Childhood is a safe nurturing space, separated from adulthood, in which children can grow, develop and flourish; a time to be healthy, carefree and happy; playing an influential role for the rest of our lives. At Leher, we believe that when caring families, alert communities and responsive governments come together a fulfilling childhood is possible for every child. Let’s pledge to a happy childhood for every child in 2015.

Childhood means much more than the time between birth and adulthood…
