Providing healthcare or nutritional interventions, or strengthening health systems
The only exceptions are those we began funding pre-2015.
We are only taking new grantees working in sub-Saharan Africa.
New grantees are early stage with big ideas.
If your budget is beyond $1m you are probably too big for us.
If your budget is beyond $2m you are definitely too big for us.
Have the potential for out-sized impact. We believe you don’t need to have a lot of money to have a big effect. Why? Because we’ve seen it firsthand.
Do it right.
Collect the data.
Make the case.
We provide funding to health needs that are elemental and under-funded. In 2016, 233,000,000 people in sub-Saharan Africa were undernourished.
Between 75% and at least 90% of Africans suffering from mental illness do not get care.
And 34 out of 1,000 babies born in sub-Saharan Africa die; many for easily preventable causes.
While we support initiatives that tackle diseases like malaria and tuberculosis, we do so as part of horizontal approaches to primary care.
