SCF supports UNICEF in providing aid to: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Liberia, Madagascar and Nepal, through a program focusing on education and equity. In all five countries poverty, natural disasters, man-made conflicts and cultural barriers have meant that millions of children cannot attend school. Discrimination against girls is widespread. SCF aims to redress this injustice by providing the educators, schools, infrastructure and supplies so desperately needed.
THE CARTER CENTER
SCF supports The Carter Center in its innovative program for mental health, specifically the Centerʼs work in Liberia, which is still devastated by 13 years of civil war. 40 percent of Liberiaʼs 3.4 million people experience post-traumatic stress disorder, but less than 1 percent has access to mental health care.
SCF and its sister foundation, The Child and Tree Fund, has collaborated with Dr. Patricia Wright, renowned primatologist, conservationist and founder of Centre ValBio, on projects to benefit Ranomafana, Madagascar. SCF has funded a re-forestation and tree nursery program, taught health education to 2000 schoolchildren and planted vegetable gardens.
