Contracted by UNICEF, the American Institutes for Research (AIR) produced in 2013 an independent evaluation of whether and to what extent the Getting Ready for School programme achieved its desired results in the six pilot countries – Bangladesh, China, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Ethiopia, Tajikistan, and Yemen – in 2008-2009.
The AIR found a high degree of interest in and enthusiasm for the programme across the countries, along with significant positive impact on children’s readiness to school. It deemed Getting Ready for School “a valuable resource for countries and communities seeking to increase opportunities for their young children to have better educational outcomes.”
From 2007-2010, Child to Child in partnership with UNICEF implemented a pilot project to enhance early childhood education in six countries around the globe – Bangladesh, China, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, Tajikistan and Yemen.

In 2011 Child to Child initiated a pilot project ‘A participatory action-based approach to empower and integrate marginalised pupils’ in South London, which involved a series of weekly child-to-child activities for refugee and asylum-seeking children.
