Research has proven that nurturing care during the first 1,000 days of a child's life is crucial for healthy brain development. Yet, each year, over 250 million children are deprived of loving care and fail to reach their full potential physically, cognitively, emotionally, and socially. Lack of quality early care significantly undermines their future educational prospects, health, prosperity, and the social and economic growth of their communities and their countries.
OneSky educates women in low-resource communities across Asia to establish high-quality early childhood programs that set children ages 0-3 on a path to succeed in school and in life. The training, consisting of in-person and distance learning modules, will be scaled up from a training hub in Hong Kong. The project will provide local women a chance to develop a professional skill, and young mothers an opportunity to find work, thus lifting families out of poverty and boosting local economies.

In December 2020 OneSky partnered with Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and completed an impact evaluation of its Vietnam program. The evaluation is the first of its kind on home-based childcare in Asian industrial zones and the largest outside of high-income countries. The findings indicate that OneSky's training program improves the quality of home-based childcare and early childhood development in Vietnam’s industrial zones.
In Mongolia, OneSky has been invited to participate in the Ministry of Education Pre-Primary Education working group, which aims to redesign and restructure care for children under three years of age and assess opportunities for expanding access to parenting education programs.
In China, despite COVID-19, OneSky programs continue to grow in close partnership with the government. In 2020, revenues from government contracts were the highest to date.
