Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

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 Nigeria, we are catalysts of human promise everywhere.

The Power of Nutrition is thrilled to have been chosen by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation as one of the inaugural “accelerators”, recognised for driving progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals.

The Gates Foundation has selected as accelerators a group of “high-level partnerships [that] catalyze substantial progress … through a combination of investment, expertise, and innovation,” towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs, also known as the Global Goals). This dynamic combination of partnership, expertise and innovation exactly defines The Power of Nutrition, which has made significant progress since its creation a little over two years ago.

Collaboration and partnership are key to this success. In two years, with partners in government and the private sector, we have already invested almost $100 million in the futures of children in Tanzania, Liberia and Ethiopia.
