VISION

What we want to achieve?

All children are equipped with the necessary skills for a successful school start.

Children start with very different experiences and skill sets into school. The difference of competency levels intensifies the further a child advances in school. At the end of primary school children from poor families lag behind their rich peers by three school years.

This is why ELEMENT A focuses on children before they attend school!

PROJECTS

How do we do it?

Highlighting impactful projects

We find projects in the area of early education and parent work with proven impact and we make them visible.

Connecting impactful projects

We place effective projects in political, business and civil society circles.

Scaling impactful projects

In partnership with local institutions we bring effective projects to where they are needed.

ABOUT US

ELEMENT A

With a focus on preventative educational measures ELEMENT A wants to enable as many children as possible to start school with the necessary skills. Since September 2017 we are working in partnership with impactful preschool and parent programmes on lowering the competency gap between rich and poor children. This way we contribute towards the societal goal of equal opportunities and make sure that children can develop the skills to make use of such opportunities.
