Parents are the most motivated advocates for their children.
We are /dost/: a parent’s friend who calls daily to empower them through tips, activities, and encouragement.
Inadequate early childhood development affects children’s lifelong social and economic attainment.
But low income parents often lack access to credible information or support tools to tackle these critical early years.
