How We Work


Our mission is to give children a solid foundation in health (whole child development) and quality education. We first understand the implementation issues at a local level. Then we partner with public and/or private organization or even individuals to mobilize funds for helping children in a school or groups of schools.


To bring about the kinds of changes that will help children gain a solid foundation, we seek to understand the field level issues at an overall level. Then, we consider whether we can make a meaningful difference with our efforts.


All of our strategies—more than two dozen across the foundation—have emerged through this process of identifying what we want to accomplish for children and where we can have the greatest impact. Once we commit to an area of need, we define our major goals and identify a clear path to achieving them.
