Fulfilling each child's full potential
We invest in the future of children by promoting good parenting and quality education.
What We Do
We conduct experiments and help to scale up science-based solutions, with the goal of ensuring that all children have a good start in life and acquire the knowledge and skills they need to reach their full potential.
Early Childhood Development
Promoting good parenting practices
Pre-school and Primary Education
Getting children ready for school and supporting learning
Promoting the development of technical and life skills
We achieve results through constant monitoring and rigorous evaluation of our projects.
We foster partnerships in an ecosystem that brings together the Ivorian government, companies in the cocoa and chocolate industry, philanthropic foundations, research partners and civil society organizations. Together, we are addressing the challenges of early childhood development and seeking to improve the quality of education.
We strongly believe that solutions must be based on scientific evidence. Accordingly, we support high-level research, studies and rigorous evaluations.
The Ministry of National Education, Technical Teaching and Vocational Training (MENETFP) will launch the Real Time Scaling Lab, a process of documentation, research, and adaptation of ongoing pilot initiatives to influence scale-ups.Read More →
