Why focus on out-of-school children? Over the last decade millions of children worldwide have gained access to education. But there is still an estimated 121 million children who are out of school and millions more who are enrolled but are not learning. The Speed School Fund has been developed to change this.

This year, World Health Day is shining a light on the devastating impact of vector-borne diseases. Read a post by Legatum's CEO, Mark Stoleson, which discusses why an investment group cares so much about these diseases that cause more than one million deaths each year and leave hundreds of millions more debilitated, disfigured, blind or just too sick to work or go to school due to their long-term effects.

Legatum's CEO, Mark Stoleson, talks to the Wall Street Journal about what makes the company's investment approach stand out from the crowd, why an altruistic agenda can co-exist with a profit motive, and where he thinks the next big investment opportunities exist.

It is with great pleasure that we announce the appointment of Nick Grono as the inaugural CEO of the Freedom Fund. Nick joins us from the Walk Free Foundation, a leading international advocacy organisation in the fight against modern slavery and one of the founding partners of the Freedom Fund.

For more information about Nick or the Freedom Fund, please visit www.freedomfund.org
