Early Childhood Fund

A child’s first years of life are crucial to its development. Children who do not receive adequate nutrition, care or stimuli may present cognitive and physical challenges later in life. Considering that 1.1 million children in Brazil between the ages of 4 and 5 are not in school, according to data from IBGE, BrazilFoundation created a special fund in 2012 dedicated to organizations working with early childhood education to identify and support initiatives under the radar of the government and other funders.
