In her address, Mrs. Bawumia emphasized the significance of early childhood development, indicating that a child's early years were the foundations of his or her future developments and was optimistic that the Library in the Box programme under the SEHP project would provide an avenue to build a strong foundation for children that will enhance their well-being and enable them to thrive.
