caplow children’s prize

RISE was named 1 of 8 finalists for the first-ever $1 million Caplow Children’s Prize, the largest humanitarian prize dedicated to saving children’s lives in the world today.

Recognizing that nearly 18,000 children under five years old die from preventable causes every day, the Children’s Prize funds projects aimed at saving the greatest number of children’s lives in the most impactful, credible, and cost-effective way. In all, 565 proposals were received from 70 countries.

Our project focused on clean water at RISE schools. One in six children in Angola die before age 5, most from preventable causes. Learn more about it in the finalists’ showcase at
