Nutrition to the Power of Four – MacArthur 100&Change Submission

Nutrition to the Power of Four – MacArthur 100&Change Submission


Our world is defined by progress but what is progress? Technology, wealth creation? By advancing the standards of those who can afford to prosper we risk leaving behind those who can’t. Like the 150 million children under five who suffer from stunting due to poor nutrition. That’s one in five children in the world. That’s enough to fill every school bus in America five times over. Four years ago the world pledged to cut stunting by 40% by 2025 and yet with only six years to go we’re decades behind. We know what works: maternal education, supplementation, improved antenatal care. What doesn’t is the fragmented way in which they are funded and delivered. That’s why The Power of Nutrition is turning that old way into a 21st century highway with four times the number of lanes. By unifying banks, governments, corporates and development organizations and breaking silos, we will transform your one hundred million dollars to four hundred million dollars and make this the most nutrition efficient partnership ever created. Together, let’s build and fix that road to global nutriton and eliminate stunting for good. Then and only then can we truly say that we live in a world of progress.
