The Center for Child Well-being and Development (CCWD) supports universal opportunities for children and young adults. The Center’s main goal is to use technologies for rigorous evidence creation that will have an impact towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Our vision is to be a global reference on research of this kind, particularly through longitudinal studies. We believe research generates knowledge capable of supporting children and young adults to reach their full potential for a healthy, prosperous, and meaningful life.
