Our foundation has more than 50 years of history. A history marked by reflection and renewal. The first paragraphs of our story were about hematology. But then came a chapter in which listening to society’s new demands became the priority. The needs of children had changed, and so we adjusted our focus. Therefore, since 2007, we have embraced the cause of early childhood development.
And our reason for existing became this very important period, the beginning of life, which goes from birth to 6 years old. Always based on scientific knowledge, new pages were written. Many projects that became actions with concrete impact were born, such as Marco Legal da Primeira Infância, a law that pushes for the creation of programs, services, and initiatives geared toward the promotion of the full development of children in their early childhood.
Partnerships also bloomed, leading to international symposiums, studies with proven results, projects with real and scalable impact, training for leaders and members of the media, movies that reached new audiences, programs that became part of public policy.
We continue to search for new ways to give more and more importance and value to the narrative of our protagonists: young children. We want to continue spreading the idea that planting the seeds of full development during this phase will lead to the reaping of results for the rest of the child’s life.
