Baltimore Hunger Project

Baltimore Hunger Project is dedicated to eliminating the growing problem of weekend childhood hunger by feeding bodies and minds. We are bridging the gap between Friday and Monday by consistently providing weekend food packages to children identified as food insecure, in a compassionate and dignified manner. We raise awareness about the effects of hunger by establishing partnerships with community members, other organizations, and decision makers.

New Incentives

New Incentives’ All Babies program operates in North West Nigeria (Jigawa, Katsina, and Zamfara states), a remote, poor region with one of the lowest childhood vaccination rates in the world. In partnership with local government partners, we provide small cash transfers to caregivers when their infants receive each of four vaccines: BCG (against tuberculosis), PENTA (against diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough, hepatitis B and Haemophilus influenzae type b), PCV (against pneumococcal disease), and MCV (against measles). These vaccinations are part of the routine schedule for infant immunizations in Nigeria and are provided at no cost to the caregiver through government supported clinics. In addition, New Incentives addresses other barriers to immunization coverage, supporting partners to increase vaccine supply and increase awareness of the benefits of vaccines. We are constantly using data and evidence to inform our model and our daily operations.

DDX3X Foundation

The DDX3X Foundation was created by parents of children diagnosed with DDX3X Syndrome to support children like theirs, as well as adults, who have been diagnosed with this condition and the families that love them. As part of our mission, the Foundation supports existing research, education, and treatment programs focused on DDX3X Syndrome.

STAR House Foundation

STAR House Foundation is a non-profit organization based in Roswell, Georgia. We provide after-school tutoring and mentoring for at-risk children throughout North Fulton County. We currently serve children within three North Fulton schools, with a growing unmet need. Our summer camp is an extension of our after-school program, bridging the gap for elementary students by focusing on academic retention to combat summer learning loss. Providing this strong foundation gives local kids in need the opportunity to shoot for the stars!

Fostering Hope Ohio

Connecting and enriching youth who live in residential treatment and foster care with unique experiences of hope and healing.

Fostering Hope was established in 2013 to raise awareness of the challenges faced by children within the foster care system and provide opportunities to them while engaging the community in which they reside.

Founders Nicole Shefrin, Jason Shefrin and Jessica Everest,  along with Fostering Hope’s volunteers, work to provide foster children with often taken-for-granted experiences that typify most children’s lives, but due to limited financial and volunteer resources are sometimes lacking in the foster care setting.

Sesame Workshop

We are educators. Creators. Researchers. Moms. Dads. Caregivers. Friends. We are a community of 400+ people (plus some amazing partners!) who are passionate about one thing: helping children. We’re present in more than 150 countries, providing almost two hundred million children with access to life-changing early education, critical health lessons, and helpful tools for tough situations. And joy. Lots of joy.

We reach children in their earliest years, when we know we can have the biggest impact. Before age five, a child’s brain grows faster than at any other time, laying the foundation for all the learning, behavior, and physical and mental health to follow. And Sesame is there, helping those young children grow to reach their full potential.
