BLOOMBERG PHILANTHROPIES IS SUPPORTING BOLD, UNIQUE PROJECTS THAT IMPROVE LIVES

ENHANCING THE QUALITY OF LIFE AROUND THE WORLD

In addition to our five main focus areas, Bloomberg Philanthropies takes on additional, unique projects that work to change people’s lives for the better, and for which Mike Bloomberg has a special passion. The Johns Hopkins Hospital building featuring the Charlotte R. Bloomberg Children’s Center and support for Women for Women International, an organization that empowers female victims of conflict in Africa, are just two examples of our founders projects.

Women’s Economic Development:

Working with government, non-profit and private sector partners, Bloomberg Philanthropies’ Women’s Economic Development initiative provides women in Sub-Saharan Africa with the training and skills they need to improve their economic wellbeing and contribute to the development of their families, communities and countries. The program has enrolled more than 153,000 women in training, more than 105,000 children in school, and has created businesses that expand into international markets.

Charlotte R. Bloomberg Children’s Center:

The Johns Hopkins Hospital building—which includes the Charlotte R. Bloomberg Children’s Center—combines art and architecture to create a unique healing environment for young patients undergoing treatment. The Children’s Center, named in honor of Mike Bloomberg’s late mother, is a state-of-the-art treatment facility that elevates the look and feel of the hospital to match the quality of care provided to patients and their families.
