OneSky teaches communities and caregivers to provide nurturing responsive care and early education that unlocks the vast potential hidden in our world's most vulnerable young children.
Founded in 1998 to provide care for institutionalized children in China, OneSky is now working toward large-scale, practical application of its innovative yet proven early childhood intervention models in multiple developing countries.
OneSky's early intervention models address the needs of at-risk children in a variety of circumstances, including China's "economic orphans" whose parents leave their impoverished villages to find jobs in faraway cities and Vietnam's children of factory workers whose parents cannot find quality daycare during their long hours at work.
To date, OneSky has trained thousands of caregivers to provide life-changing care that has directly impacted the lives of nearly 170,000 at-risk children and indirectly, millions.

The program is targeted at children in disintegrating villages in rural China struggling after their parents emigrate to seek work elsewhere. It includes preschool teacher training, refurbishing preschools, caregiver training and community events.
Impact Statement
$200 increases development outcomes for an at-risk child by 0.2 standard deviations.
Methodology
OneSky and the China Development Foundation conducted a randomized controlled trial of the Village Model to estimate impact.
Data Source
Evaluators from the China Development Research Foundation used the ASQ-3 to measure child development in communication, gross and fine motor skills, problem-solving and personal-social skills.
Attribution Method
In the randomized controlled trial, 30 villages in Ye County were randomly selected, then matched to 30 similar villages. Within the pairs, treatment was randomly assigned.
