Our Mission

Our Vision

We seek to unlock the possibility inside every individual. We see equal value in all lives. And so, we are dedicated to improving the quality of life for individuals around the world. From the education of students in Chicago, to the health of a young mother in Syria. we are catalysts of human promise everywhere.

 

Whatever the conditions of people’s lives, wherever they live, however they live, we all share the same dreams. We are focused on the areas of greatest need, on the ways in which we can do the most good. From poverty to health, to education, our areas of focus offer the opportunity to dramatically improve the quality of life for billions of people. So, we build partnerships that bring together resources, expertise, and vision—working with the best organizations around the globe to identify issues, find answers, and drive change. We see individuals, not issues. We are inspired by passion, and compassion for the wellbeing of people.

 

Our methods are based on logic, driven by rigor, results, issues, and outcomes. Our innovation means trying new things, learning from our mistakes, and consistently refining our approach. Our strategies help us define our path to success, but our effectiveness is based in the aggregate power of our initiatives to impact holistic change.

Our Mission

Good health makes life better. We want to improve health for everyone by helping great ideas to thrive.

That’s why we support thousands of curious, passionate people all over the world to explore great ideas, at every step of the way from discovery to impact. We also identify priority areas where we can give focused, intensive support when there are real opportunities to transform lives, or we can drive reform to ensure that ideas reach their full potential.

 

The problems we seek to solve are complex and demand the coordination and focus of many – leaders, governments, communities, and individuals around the world. Our work is challenging, but we know we can get there. We cannot succeed alone, but together we can work for a world where all can thrive.
