Childhood Development

Our vision is for children to reach their maximum development potential and transform their communities.

10.8 million Latin-American children under the age of 5 are at risk of not reaching their maximum potential.
We build a better future from the start.

EARLY CHILDHOOD DEVELOPMENT

Early childhood (from pregnancy up to 5 years of age) plays a key role in the development of our children. Early childhood development (ECD) refers to cognitive, physical, linguistic, and socioemotional development during early childhood in an integral way.

 

OUR STRATEGY

Achieving the development of our children is everyone’s responsibility. Only by joining efforts between governments, businesses, schools, non-governmental organizations and the communities will we be able to foster growth and welfare in the region.

We implemented 4 strategic principal in order to reach our vision:

  • We uphold the population’s education on ECD.
  • We encourage innovative and replicable models.
  • We invite other organizations to socially invest in early childhood.
  • We create skills and leadership in the sector.
