“Children are our world’s most priceless gift.”
These are the words of Djavad Mowafaghian, a philanthropist who has transformed the lives of countless children and youth and created positive and lasting change around the world.
Capilano University shares Dr. Mowafaghian’s view that the early childhood years fundamentally shape the social fabric of our society and that access to high quality early learning and childcare is the foundation of the development of healthy children and families, caring communities, and an inclusive and resilient society.
“We are proud to welcome The Djavad Mowafaghian Foundation to the community of leaders who have invested in our new Centre for Childhood Studies,” commented Paul Dangerfield, Capilano University President. “It is our privilege to work together to harness the potential of early learning to create a brighter future by optimizing the education of our young children.”
