Founded in 2015, Big Win Philanthropy is an independent foundation that invests in children and young people to improve lives and maximize demographic dividends for long-term economic growth. We believe they are critical to advance national development and prosperity.
Our focus is on investments in sub-Saharan Africa that promote three areas of human capital growth: brain development, education and youth employment. Led by the priorities of our African partners, we support leaders to effectively define and deliver the 'big win' goals in these areas that they regard as most important for their countries and regions.
