Foundation Memories | Annual Letter 2020 | Melinda Gates


When I look at this photo,
I think of what these women describe to me in their family
lives about when they have access to modern contraceptives
and when they don’t. They talk about the
opportunities for their family. We went bold, and we said, you
know millions and millions of women should have access to these
modern contraceptives. And I think the way this family
planning work has changed me is it’s made me more
certain of what I’m hearing from the women that I
can now see in the data. And where we haven’t had data,
where we’re collecting data, I can actually see the
patterns and trends, and I know we’re on the right track. The foundation’s first
offices were on the second floor of this old brick building,
above Big Time Pizza. We never could’ve imagined
that we were going to go from small office over a pizza parlor to what we are doing now
globally as a foundation, and the number of experts
who we get to work with, who come through our doors. We made our first large investment in the Children’s Vaccine Program. We knew that these were risky things. We knew that we had so much to learn, and we knew there was invention
that needed to happen, and so for all of those reasons, it felt incredibly hard
and like we might fail, that we might take these
risks and not succeed. But we’re swinging for the fences. As the work has come along
and we’ve listened to partners and learned even more about the barriers, you realize there’s so
much work to be done. In 2014, around the foundation,
while we had fantastic programs like agriculture,
financial services for the poor, we weren’t really thinking about gender. So, I wrote this “Science”
article to really start to talk about what’s
important about gender, and how do we take a gender lens across the work inside the foundation. And now, we’re looking at this issue, we’re trying to face it
head-on, we’re collecting data, and we’re beginning to make investments. And when you do those three things, you can absolutely make progress
against gender equality. Some of the most touching
moments in the United States are when these Gates
Millennium Scholars come up and speak with us, or give us a note. And it’s deeply moving,
I think, because I know the difference that a college
education made in my life. The U.S. education work over time, by far, has been the hardest thing we’ve taken on. We didn’t understand how
difficult it would be to change a system that is
not serving all kids well, but we’re deeply committed
because every single child in the United States
deserves a great education. I hope in 20 years, we
can look back and say, “Wow, we made a difference in kids’ lives and opened new opportunities to them that maybe their parents didn’t have.” When we started in this
work, we were going into whole fields Bill and
I knew very little about. You’re working on the world’s
most difficult problems, the things that society has left behind. We are not done yet. We’re by no means done
in terms of the work we need to take on or
do with our partners. But I’m proud about how
we’re approaching it. If you take a long-term view on something, and you set a strategy, and
you’re willing to listen to experts, learn in the field, the progress is absolutely possible.

  • Sir, could you please help peoples who directly involved to clean drinages and septic tanks in countries like india…By makes Robots to help them.
    please sir just watch this https://youtu.be/F7cF9883aH0

  • Melinda, hello, would you like to comment rumor about a coronavirus patent? Is it truth?! Is it truth that you and your husband do sponsor some programs related to biological weapons and you are associated with USA special services?

  • Melinda and Bill Gates. Many people are aware of your eugenics, depopulation agenda and we do not consent. The vaccine harm you have committed in developing countries is criminal and amoral. Your belief in the Georgia Guidestones as a goal to strive for is a psychopathic mindset. If Bill can conduct a TEDx talk admitting the depopulation agenda, then you have no recourse to deny this fact. People of the world….do your homework and you will see the truth about this couple and the people they conspire with to eliminate you and I from their future. Your partnership (or ownership, not sure which it is) in Pirbright Lab. in the UK developing a new coronavirus so that you can inoculate the world with the ‘cure’ is transparent and your involvement will come to light but not in the way you are anticipating. Please stop being so evil.

  • Thanks mam you picture I like you. I am always remember your foundation do work.please need a small support Mr thid contact 9935542800

  • God bless you Melinda!
    It is So amazing what you and Bill are doing.
    You both need jest one little thing, accept Jesus Christ, and if you did, well what is more to say. You both are doing the will of God Almighty.

  • Bill Gates father was a President of Planned Parenthood. He has a depopulation goal. It is being accomplished via the vaccines he's pushing on the 3rd world. They have caused infertility, paralysis and death.
    This is an evil couple. They do not have our best in mind.
    Research.

  • Dear Lord,

    I am a young man from a poor village in India. Everyone in our village is a farmer's family. We depend on agriculture. We have no irrigation facilities. Wee Railroad on Rain. Rain does not come right from time to time. If the rain comes and the crop grows we will not get the right reward. Our lives are very painful. We wrote several letters to the government and they gave no response. Farmers in our village committed suicide without getting paid for their crops. For a few months, people in our village have been wandering around for lunch. I am writing this letter crying. I don't see a solution to the hundred problems we have. None of us helped. May the God of our salvation protect all of us. I have a question for me. Is that God really alive?I have a question: where is that god really alive? See how God is still sitting there looking at our sufferings and our sufferings.

    I don't believe in that God, I see that God in you. You are the God of our part and you are all of us. I believe you are the God of human form. I have read and seen on TV in many newspapers that you're have helped many people. The God of our Presence Protect All of Us. I have great faith in you and I hope you have heard our troubles and responded.

    The people of our village are in charge. We will one day be the model village for this world. We want to put your name on our village. Thank you sir 🙏

    Your mendicant

  • 행복은 아주 작은거라 하네요 
    거창하고 큰 것에서 찾지 마세요.
    멀리 힘들게 헤매지 마세요.
    비록 작지만 항상  친구님 눈앞에 있답니다.
    한주을 시작하는 월요일 오늘도 활기차고 행복한 하루 보내세요~~친구님 사랑합니다9👌👌👌💕💕
