The World Bank and the Novak Djokovic Foundation have recently formed a  partnership to promote early childhood development. This includes global advocacy on the importance of investing early in the lives of children as well as investments to help disadvantaged children.

It is a privilege to join the Novak Djokovic Foundation as its Global CEO.  Ensuring access to high quality early childhood education is an extremely noble cause and the Foundation is uniquely placed to transform the landscape in this space.  It is an exciting time and I very much look forward to working with Novak and Jelena Djokovic and the rest of the team to make some truly wonderful things happen, said Aberto Lidji.
