Our programs build entrepreneurship and economic opportunity, support ambitious education reform efforts, and develop solutions to pervasive public health issues, including HIV/AIDS. Across all of our work, we consult regional partners to create meaningful, effective programs that are informed by local contexts and are designed to be sustainable long into the future.
