This is grass roots driven, community initiative recommended by the Aboriginal Community to better serve our Community.
The Human Early Learning Partnership (HELP) collaborates with academic, government, school, and community partners to gather data and report on child well-being in British Columbia. In 1999, HELP began collecting and mapping population level child development data province-wide using the Early Development Instrument (EDI). The EDI data provide communities and policy makers with the information they need to monitor children’s development, and to develop effective program and policy responses that will help B.C.’s children and families thrive.
