WHAT IS EARLY CHILDHOOD?

From pregnancy to 5 years of age, children develop the skills that will accompany them for the rest of their lives. In this stage, gaps open in the development of children living in unfavorable environments and this accentuates the inequality of opportunities from the beginning. Investing in early childhood will have a profound impact on the future of each child and on society as a whole.

OUR STRATEGY

By investing in children, we impact the trajectory of growth and competitiveness of our countries. Developing children is a task for all and together we can make a difference. To achieve our vision, we have three main lines of work:

  • We build resilient communities with children at the center.
  • We position early childhood on the public agenda in Latin America.
  • We mobilize companies to impact the human capital of the future.
