Inclusive societies begin with a good start for all children
Since 1949, the Van Leer Foundation has been dedicated to supporting young children, caregivers and communities worldwide. We work with our partners to achieve large-scale impact for inclusive societies.
A world where children and communities flourish
We believe investing in a good start for children is the best way to build inclusive societies. The early years is when we can best: learn to connect with and trust others; reduce inequalities in health, education and income; and bring leadership together for action from across the social and political spectrum.
Where we work
We support scalable ideas all around the world. Our country and global portfolios represent diversity in social, economic and cultural terms.
We bring people together from across diverse societies to ensure all young children and communities can flourish. Sign up for email updates to stay in touch with our network.
