About us

Effective, impactful philanthropy demands an intimate understanding of the issues. But it takes time and resources to establish the facts and monitor and evaluate results. That's where we come in. We can connect you with inspiring entrepreneurs, new technologies, and proven models that bridge a gap preventing children from thriving. We don't work with the usual suspects. We seek out and offer you the game changers. We focus on programs with the potential to be transformative, scalable and sustainable in the areas of child health, education and protection. Even the best ideas need the right guidance and oversight. We challenge our program-partners' assumptions rigorously, and only 5% of programs meet our tough standards. With our global coverage, proven expertise and deep understanding of the world of philanthropy we can work with you to transform good ideas into great programs for the benefit of vulnerable children around the world.
