The first few years are critical ones for children to development a foundation for success in school, work and life. United Way of Mexico is fueling United Way’s Born Learning program across Mexico, a United Way initiative that helps parents, caregivers and early childhood education professionals give children the resources and support they need to start school ready to succeed.
United Way supports more than 188 child care centers, building capacity and offering training to the teachers and staff (and aligning with local primary schools). So far, more than 28,000 children and adults have been impacted in this long-term strategy.
But United Way also helps the families of Mexico with strategies to lift themselves out of poverty – focusing on job training, literacy classes, and connecting people to services.
Early childhood learning is a priority for more than 90 percent of United Ways in our global network.
