Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation

Description Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation teams up with partners around the world to take on tough challenges like extreme poverty and poor health in developing countries, and the failures of America's education system. The foundation maintains a narrow focus to maximize impact, and focuses on these issues in particular because they are the biggest barriers that prevent people from making the most of their lives. Bill and Melinda Gates foundation funds innovative ideas that could help remove these barriers: new techniques to help farmers in developing countries grow more food and earn more money, new tools to prevent and treat deadly diseases, and new methods to help students and teachers.
