The First 1 000 Days of a child’s life – the time during which their ability to learn, grow and thrive – can be profoundly affected by the quality of the care, nutrition and education they receive. Ajuga addresses this need.

Poor school performance and a diminished capacity to learn would not only affect a child’s own future, but also have an economic effect on the nation as a whole, because of poor productivity and later healthcare costs. Our Ajuga initiative aims to assist and educate our communities to help ensure that the first 1000 days of a child’s life are catered with the necessary solid building blocks for the future, enabling these children to learn well, and become valuable members of our communities.
