In Colombia, families face many obstacles to educational success. Government-funded public schools typically provide only one year of preschool, and many schools operate on a half-day schedule. Working parents with infants and toddlers often struggle to find high-quality child care during those crucial early years.
Whole Foods Market sources some of our Whole Trade® flowers from Elite Flower in Facatativá, Colombia, where an innovative program provides early childhood education, primary school and scholarships for children of farmworkers.
