Finances

Bringing business principles to development, we work with partners to achieve urgent and lasting change for children at scale.

Children are too important to save one at a time

With a strong financial base, we have a growing portfolio of charitable grants with a value of over three-quarters of a billion dollars. In the 2016 financial year, grant disbursements were $242 million. 

New grants were approved across our priority areas of adolescents' sexual and reproductive health,  healthnutritioneducation and deworming,  along with child protection, and smart ways to slow down and stop climate change.


In partnership across geographies

With offices in London, Nairobi and New Delhi. Our grants are distributed across the globe, with Sub-Saharan Africa receiving the largest share.
