GATES is a global charitable foundation dedicated to fighting child abuse.
Its charity arm, the Gates Foundation, has donated more than £1 billion to aid children’s causes over the past century.
It’s also been at the forefront of campaigning against violence against women, trafficking, and child sexual exploitation.
In 2018, the foundation announced it would spend £400 million on new programmes.
One of the projects that it is working on is the Gates Project.
In it, the organisation aims to give children in developing countries the opportunity to learn English.
So far, the project has delivered more than 8 million children, and has helped more than 1.5 million students achieve a high-school degree or higher.
In 2020, the group plans to spend £700 million on programmes to increase literacy and numeracy in countries around the world.
And in 2017, it announced a £1.4 billion funding package to support the organisation’s work in tackling global poverty and human rights violations.
