Why it matters
- 1Power: We work to bring renewable energy to sub-Saharan Africa, where 55 percent of the population has no access to electricity. We also seek to expand Africa’s role in the voluntary carbon market space, turning to Africa’s abundant natural resources.
- 2Food: We believe school meals are the most reliable social safety net, and are working to help supply nutritious meals, often using local produce farmed through regenerative methods.
- 3Health: We envision a world where data-driven decisions empower community health systems. We leverage health data for surveillance, pandemic preparedness, and response efforts. We accelerate data collection, aggregation, analysis, and utilization to revolutionize public health and achieve health equity for all.
