Summary

This document is comprised of the papers presented at the First Ladies' Symposium on Early Childhood in Egypt in May 2001. Participating in the symposium were representatives from the World Bank, the Amsterdam Institute for International Development, the Children's Project, and the Academy for Educational Development. The symposium opened with an address from Suzanne Mubarak, the first lady of Egypt, asserting that education is the best investment for the future of Egypt and discussing a plan to increase the percentage of children in preschool from 13 to 60 percent over 5 years. Elaine R. Wolfensohn of the World Bank applauded Egypt's progress in numerous educational reforms and in its focus on investing in early childhood development to expand its comprehensive framework for education and training. Jacques van der Gaag's (Amsterdam Institute for International Development) presentation, "From Child Development to Human Development," described the costs and benefits of investing in early childhood development. A presentation by Joan Lombard, of the Children's Project, discussed the importance of the child's environment for the process of brain development. Chloe O'Gara's (Academy for Educational Development) presentation summarizing work appraising policies and programs for young children in Egypt concluded the symposium proceedings.(KB)
