Cooking over open fires is one of the world's biggest - but least known - killers. Four million people die each year from breathing in toxic cooking smoke, mainly women and their children strapped to their backs or playing nearby.
The Solution: A locally-made, affordable cookstove.
Most children in developing countries die from preventable diseases, but treatments to save them cost less than a cup of coffee.
The Solution: Training Community Health Workers to get the right drugs into the right places.
80% of the poor in Sub-Saharan Africa work as rural farmers. Each night, 75% of their children go hungry because they struggle to grow enough to feed their own families.
The Solution: Access to irrigation, drought-resistant seeds and farming mentors.
You can live without a lot, except water. 36% of all water wells in Africa are currently broken, often because there are no spare parts, tools, funding or trained mechanics nearly.
The Solution: Train well mechanics and caretakers locally to keep water flowing.
