Alleviate and Eliminate Global Poverty Fund

About

Nobody needs to be told that poverty is a problem. 1.3 billion people live on under $1.25 a day and we all know the suffering this creates - children die, families starve, and students complete school unable to read a simple sentence. But it is possible to make a real dent in the problems that face the poorest people. Mulago looks for scalable solutions to poverty and funds them. We look for the best solutions in health, livelihoods, education, energy and conservation and fund the organizations that can deliver those solutions. We find and fund those organizations most able to create scalable impact for the poor in these priority areas. The health organizations Mulago funds save lives by bringing high-quality, cost-effective health care to the poor in Africa and Asia. We look for organizations that provide services that farmers need and that increase their incomes. The education organizations we fund help provide a quality education to poor people. Our job is to find the organizations best able to create change and give them what they need to do it.

Living Goods

Living Goods saves lives at scale by supporting digitally enabled community health workers who deliver care on call – making it easy for families in low- and middle-income countries to get the care they need. To achieve this, we leverage smart mobile technology and real-time data to optimize outcomes, performance, and accountability. We work closely with governments and partners to strengthen national community health systems. We ensure health workers are effectively compensated, suevised and equipped. We nimbly innovate to deliver the greatest health outcomes at the lowest cost. And we always aim for national scale, co-creating financing solutions to make universal health coverage a reality.

Mothers2mothers

mothers2mothers is an African Primary Health Care organization that employs women living with HIV as community health workers across 10 African nations. These “Mentor Mothers” deliver integrated health services at clinics and in communities to ensure everyone, everywhere has access to the services they need to be healthy and stay in care. Over the next five years, this proven, peer-led model is being scaled up to double down on ending HIV, as well as to tackle new health challenges and reach more people—all with the aim of building a fairer, healthier future. The employment of local women as community health workers means that we are delivering a model that prioritizes health care for families who need it most, delivered by women who know them best.
