We at MIAGI have signed the Global Child Forum pledge to advance children's rights and well-being through our operations. Together we want to transform children's lives! 

On April 11, the 10th Global Child Forum 2018 was held at the Stockholm Royal Palace in Sweden. MIAGI and over 300 participants from around the world gathered to discuss how to best advance children's rights and well-being. Participants represented global companies, financial institutions, civil society, the UN, academia and government.

MIAGI's pledge:

Inspired by James Heckman’s research ( on the astonishing impact and value at an individual level, as well as to society as a whole, of high quality early childhood development (ECD) programmes and our own MIAGI ECD programme that has been running in crèches and pre-schools in Soweto, Johannesburg we have decided to focus in particular on extending and developing ECD programmes for the children living in Khayelitsha. All in all, we will focus on children, very young children in particular.
