Avanti works in 4 public school systems in India to help transform the high-school science classroom. Our learning coaches show students how to learn collaboratively and provide curriculum tailored to peer learning. This student-centric pedagogy dramatically improves academic outcomes, conceptual understanding and college acceptance for our students. Additionally, this approach offers a viable solution to teacher shortages in public school classrooms. 40% of our first graduating class placed among the top 1% in India in math and science. Over the next 10 years, we plan to expand our work to include over 1 million students in public schools across India.

Jacaranda Health’s mission is to change the way that maternity care is provided in Africa. We are combining business and clinical innovations to create a scalable chain of clinics that provide high-quality reproductive health services to poor urban women. Our goal is to become the largest provider of affordable maternity care in the region, and a laboratory for innovation in maternal health. To date, we have built a world-class team, developed critical partnerships and support within Kenya, sparked the interest of the global maternal health community, and received awards for our model. We began delivering babies in our first maternity hospital in 2012,  are opening another two hospitals in 2014, and then aim to expand to cities across East Africa over the next five years.

Equal Opportunity Schools partners with high schools to find students missing from the most rigorous classes and change their life trajectories. By identifying, enrolling and supporting missing students in challenging college-preparatory courses, we boost their academic motivation and achievement, and their likelihood of going to and graduating from college. Although “challenging high school courses” and “advanced classes” can be defined in many ways, we focus on the Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) programs, which provide the clearest measurable standard aligned with college-level work. Further, reasonably strong research posits a causal link between these courses and college completion

The Pure Earth/Blacksmith mission is to identify and clean up the poorest communities in low- and middle-income countries where high concentrations of toxic pollution have devastating health effects. We devise clean-up strategies, empower local champions and secure support from national and international partnerships. Cleaning up toxins in one community at a time brings us closer to a Pure Earth. We have cleaned up toxins in 75 locations that were affecting over 4 million people, one quarter of those children under six. These people will live longer; have less intellectual impairment, cancer and other diseases. We’re currently in progress with 24 projects enhancing an additional 2.9 million lives.

Wild4life’s goal is to get health services to rural communities that are beyond the reach of the current system. Our unconventional approach is to forge partnerships with non-health organizations with strong local networks, already operating in these remote communities. Working with our partner Painted Dog Conservation in Zimbabwe, Wild4life engages local communities and community structures, NGOs that provide direct health services, and government agencies in the planning, implementation, and management of our rural community health program. By serving as the catalyst to coordinate these initiatives, we have created a community-owned and Ministry of Health supported model that is affordable, effective and scalable.
