CLCD is a collaborative, research-based, nonprofit organization that designs and implements solutions to promote children's survival and development. Our mission is to advance research, promote children's learning, and save lives through research, capacity development, and advocacy. We partner with organizations and institutions to address priority research, programmatic and policy needs in early childhood development.



The highlights of our summer have always been our Global health Internship Training Program. CLCD started this program 3 years ago to advance research by supporting the training of students in neonatal health and child development. Over the 3 year period, we have trained 20 students in research and intervention development for mothers and children in low-income countries. Just recently, we included a community service training program for those students who want to give back to society. The summer program has always been a learning experience for us.
