Our Annual Report is out!
While the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve in ways that are still difficult to predict, let’s take a moment to focus on Cartier Philanthropy’s achievements over the past 12 months, presented in the freshly-published Annual Report.
The Upside n. 6: Education endures
The COVID-19 shutdowns have resulted in millions of children being out of school. School closures are likely to prove more than an interruption in the schooling of many girls and boys, putting an end to their education forever.
The Upside series n. 5: A silent struggle
The pandemic has spread fear and stress no less than viral load. In Zambia our partner StrongMinds is well positioned to help provide the psychological care that women so desperately need.
The Upside series n. 4: The hunger crisis
COVID-19 is more than a global health crisis. The measures taken to slow the spread of the virus may break already-fragile food supply chains, shattering the lives and livelihoods of smallholder farmers.
The Upside series n. 3: The frontliners
Though it’s difficult to project what trajectory the outbreak is likely to follow the effective deployment of community health workers could really be a game changer, backed up by Africa’s invaluable know-how from fighting past epidemics.
The Upside series n. 2: Repurposing
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 panedmic, VisionSpring has redeployed its people power and repurposed its procurement and supply capacity to help prevent the spread of the virus.
The Upside series n. 1: Focus’ shift
The Upside series we’re launching aims to keep you informed about how the partner organisations we trust and fund are responding to the COVID-19 crisis. A disaster changes the world and our view of it. The Upside will highlight this shift.
Reinventing education in Africa
Innovative learning models continue to be developed and deployed, and not just in places replete with resources. We partnered with Le Monde Afrique to look at the schools of tomorrow in Africa. Some of them are our partners.
Health care in Cox’s Bazar
Last November Cartier Philanthropy visited BRAC’s health interventions in the world’s largest refugee camp in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh. “The worst seems to be over” told us doctor Shariful.
Funders should be part of the solution
... and not of the problem! Last September 26, during U.N. General Assembly week, we joined the conversation hosted by our partner Luminos Fund on the global learning crisis and the role philanthropy could play.
