2017 Year in Review

Because of you—our sponsors, fundraisers, partners, and supporters across the globe—incredible things were possible.

In 2017, we reached more children and moms than ever before.

Together, we made a global impact through a network of field partners 1,200 strong!
Working in 59 countries around the world, and all 50 states in the U.S., we helped save lives and increase potential by delivering...

Vitamin A

Reduces preventable illness, blindness, and death.


Eliminates worms and improves absorption of key nutrients.


Supports safe pregnancies and healthy babies.

300 Million Reached Over the Last Decade!

300 Million Reached Over the Last Decade!

61 million served means that in 2017 we grew our reach by 17% over 2016 and served on average, 1 out of every 125 people on the planet!

Where are the 61 million?

The 61 million children and mothers we reached in 2017 call many places home...

...They're in Syria and beyond, where we expanded to serve refugee populations and put them on a pathway to better health and nutrition.

...They're in the United States, where we provided over 150,000 pregnant moms with prenatal vitamins. That's about 1 mom, like Michaela from Florida, every 3 minutes!

...They're in hard-to-reach locations. In 2017, we introduced an exciting new way to offer training to our field partners, no matter where they are or whether they have internet access.

That's not all!

That's not all!

In 2017, we were featured in a film by award-winning documentarian Joel McCarthy, which explored the joys and challenges of parenting...


...We convened summits around the world, bringing together our field partners to share information, identify opportunities to expand their reach and build capacity...

...We were awarded Guidestar's Platinum Seal and four stars from Charity Navigator, the highest ratings for transparency and impact...

...We created new, thought-provoking, and easily shareable ways to spread the power of vitamins...

...We sought out feedback from our field partners on what we are doing well and where we can get better...and much more!

We're humbled and grateful for your generosity.

Thank you.
