Welcome to a Special Edition of e-Child Times.
With so much going in the sector at the moment, it is hard to find the perfect place to start for my first “CEO” entry. I’ll start with the biggest win for children we’ve seen in a long time, and that was Minderoo Foundation’s announcement of their $75 million donation to early childhood as part of their broader $400 million donation to help ‘revolutionise the world’. Some may think that it’s an overly optimistic goal but personally I think it’s rather achievable. People with incredible foresight will be the ones to truly pave the way forward for social change, and we need more people like the Forrests that are driven towards global purpose to stand up and take notice. Sure the average person may not have the financial capacity to match the Forrest’s remarkable contribution, but it’s about so much more than that. It is about individual influence and collective impact.
