Dear Friends and Partners,
This month we celebrate The Power of Nutrition’s fifth birthday. Looking back over the past five years, it has been a thrilling journey which took us from ‘start-up’ phase to where we are today – an influential Foundation transforming the funding of global nutrition issues.
Through our co-investments, we have already enabled over 38 million mothers and children in Sub-Saharan Africa and Asia to access vital nutrition services including iron and folic acid supplementation for pregnant women, Vitamin A supplementation for children, the promotion of exclusive breastfeeding, and the innovative use of mobile technology for behaviour change interventions. We have secured over $280 million dollars of funding commitments, which leveraged a total portfolio of 14 programmes across 12 countries just shy of $500 million. However, we believe we’re just getting started.
Our accomplishments are testament to the support of our incredible partners
To date, we have convened over 20 strategic partnerships across the private and public sector. We’d like to thank our founding partners, DFID, CIFF, UBS Optimus Foundation, World Bank and Unicef, for believing in our mission from the start. Five years on, we are proud to have grown this list and enjoy the support of new partners from the private sector, foundations, governments, INGOs and high net-worth individuals, who all share their unique expertise and experiences to maximise the impact of our programmes.
