Primero Lo Primero (PLP) is the strongest public-private collective impact vehicle for early childhood development in Colombia, replicating it's proven model in other Latin American countries. We are comprised of regional and global, private and public organizations focused on quality early childhood development. As an alliance we are mobilizing Latin America to demand and provide access to quality early childhood development.
Today the objective of the alliance is to work towards a common agenda based on increasing the level of quality across early childhood systems, increasing access to quality early childhood resources and programs for the regions most vulnerable populations, and advocating for the inclusion of early childhood development policy in government agendas.
Since 2011 PLP organizations have combined technical, administrative, and financial efforts to develop quality early childhood programs and centers in Colombia in alignment with the national policy “De Cero a Siempre. Together we have built, operate, or have strengthened a total of 101 early childhood centers, directly impacting the lives of 31,376 children between zero and five years of age in Colombia, Mexico, and Argentina.
In 2016 the Primero Lo Primero alliance was established as a legal entity in Colombia, and 501 C (3) public charity in the United States, Primero Lo Primero U.S..
The founding fiduciary organizations provide resources, and continue creating alliances to further evolve the PLP collective impact vehicle.
