Gooru is working to support teachers as they transform learning via open source technology. By eliminating the need to refrigerate vaccines, Nanoly is enabling effective and safe delivery of medical care anywhere in the world. In Africa’s informal settlements,Sanergy is focused on making hygienic sanitation affordable and accessible.
