Foundation for Child Development
The Foundation for Child Development is a US charity organization. They seek to help that every family has the social and material resources to raise their children to be healthy, educated and productive members of their communities. The basic principle is that hard work should lead to a better lif.
The Foundation for Child Development produces the Child Well-being Index (CWI) which is a US nationwide, composite index of 28 indicators. It describes annually how children fare since 1975. The index was published first in 2004 and is updated annually by Kenneth Land, Duke University.
Another major initiative is the research promotion on how young immigrant children fare from birth to the age of ten.
