This initiative is a partnership between GFC and the Bainum Family Foundation.
The Supporting Early Education and Development (SEED) initiative brings together an initial cohort of five community-based organizations that utilize best practices in early childhood development, including child-centered approaches, play-based learning, multigenerational programming, and program designs that integrate health and nutrition.
The goal of this pilot initiative is to improve development and learning outcomes for low-income Honduran children ages 8 and under. The SEED initiative supports community-based organizations in strengthening their programs for infants and young children and in creating an environment that nurtures and engages children, families, and communities.
Casa ASTI builds relationships with children and families who live and work on the streets of Tegucigalpa’s urban market district, providing them with the support they need to return to and stay in school; keep their youngest children safe; and break the cycle of extreme poverty.
Centro de Niños con Necesidades Educativas Especiales (CNNEE) is a solidarity initiative that promotes inclusive education with and for all by supporting families with preschool education and developmental therapy for young children, children with disabilities, and children with learning disorders.
