WE NEED YOUR HELP TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE: HELP US TO ADDRESS A PRESSING NEED IN GLOBAL HEALTH
Hello! Thank you for checking out our campaign!
Chronic Disease, a quiet killer, takes million of lives each year.
1 in 4 individuals worldwide live with a non-communicable chronic disease (NCD) condition. It wouldn't be surprising if someone you know suffers from NCDs. Do you know someone?
TeamFx has been selected to advance to the regional finals of the upcoming 2014 Hult Prize competition with the goal of improving the lives of millions who suffer from chronic diseases.
What is Hult Prize?
The Hult Prize Competition is a social venture challenge, essentially a high stakes business case competition where the reward is the chance to make a huge social impact in the world. It brings together college and university students from around the globe to solve the world's most pressing issues.
Selected by President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Global Initiative, this year's topic is Healthcare: Non-communicable Disease in the Urban Slum. The goal is to improve the lives of millions who suffer from diseases like cancer, heart disease, diabetes, respiratory disease, and/or mental illness.
How you can Make a Difference?
Help send TeamFx to the Shanghai regionals and make it possible for us to present our innovative ideas by supporting our efforts to compete for the Hult Prize.
We've transformed our social venture concept into a sustainable and scalable business model, addressing short- and long-term challenges to help NCD sufferers with little to no access to treatment. Your generosity will contribute to a legendary transformation in the lives of millions who suffer from NCDs around the world.
