Who We Fund

Mostly NGOs:

  • Providing healthcare or nutritional interventions, or strengthening health systems
  • Our new grantees are early stage with big ideas.
  • If your budget is beyond $2M you are probably too big for us.
  • If you’re hitting or surpassing your targets, we will probably stick with you for a long time.

Global Health Funding

We provide funding to health needs that are elemental and under-funded.

In the countries where we work, the prevalence of stunting in children under 5 is between 30 and 40%. Yet nutrition accounts for only 1% of US Global Health Funding.

In Africa, approximately 100 million people suffer from depression. For African women, depression is the number one cause of disability. Yet, 85% percent of people suffering from depression in Africa – including 66 million women – have no access to effective treatment. The U.S. spends 0% of its global health budget on mental illness.

And 78 out of 1,000 babies born in sub-Saharan Africa die before their 5th birthday – many for easily preventable causes. — UNICEF

While we support initiatives that tackle diseases like malaria and tuberculosis, we do so as part of horizontal approaches to primary care.
