Project ID 263BRA3000

This Joint Programme (JP) aims to support the scaling up of the Happy Child Programme (HCP) - an existing social protection scheme that aims to reach families/caregivers through home visits with the support they need to ensure cognitive, emotional and social development of their children. HCP is an innovative and proactive state policy showing that early childhood development is one of the best ways for a country to boost shared prosperity, expand equitable opportunity, end extreme poverty and accelerate the SDGs' targets. It is linked to the Bolsa Familia programme - one of the world's largest conditional cash transfer programmes, concentrating efforts on leaving no one behind.
