Subject: Youth Development | Deadline: Dec. 31, 2014
(1) Urban Education - "Education-related grants comprise two-thirds of our giving. We are committed to improving student performance and increasing access to urban education so that children and adolescents around the globe have improved opportunities for life-long success." (2) Childhood Health - "For economically disadvantaged families worldwide, the basic building blocks of childhood health can seem unobtainable. The ramifications for children are profound, snowballing from struggles to stay in school to a higher risk of lifetime poverty to dramatically diminished life expectancies. Fighting preventable childhood illness is key to our mission. We focus on timely interventions that can mitigate a number of common childhood afflictions including obesity in the U.S., and malnutrition, poor sanitation and other maladies in Africa and India."
