Bill Gates’ Foundation Entrepreneurship Loan Program for Developing Countries aims to tackle the worrying phenomenon of youth unemployment in the World as a whole by building the capacity of young people and financing their business ideas. The program aims to equip young people with the skills and knowledge necessary to become independent by creating and running their own businesses.
We seek to drive change on a global scale.
Our focus on economic empowerment unlocks possibility on the individual and communal level. Our work in the field of global health saves lives, helping families and communities thrive, both today, and tomorrow. Our efforts on education help ensure that individuals have the tools they need to achieve the promise in their own lives.
We seek to edit the possibilities within each individual. We see the same value in all lives. That is why we are committed to improving the quality of life of people all over the world. From educating students in Chicago to the health of a young mother in Nigeria, we are catalysts for human promise everywhere.
