Early initiatives

During its early phase of operation, the Foundation contributed to many varied projects and initiatives that enabled us to fine-tune our current orientations. These early activities, which were very varied in nature and scope, were in the following areas:

  • Children and their families
  • Their community and environment
  • The practitioners who work with them (as well as certain tools they use)
  • Society in general.

The examples of projects listed below illustrate the diversity of these activities.
