Around the world, 663 million people are living without a safe water supply close to home. Safe and reliable water systems are a vital component to fulfilling MCC’s mission of reducing poverty through economic growth.
MCC works with partner countries around the world to transform the lives of children and their families by investing in projects that help people lift themselves out of poverty – in areas like education, health services and infrastructure.
MCC’s education investments in our partner countries are maximizing opportunities available to girls and young women, promoting economic growth, and contributing to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.
There is a strong link between poverty and health. MCC works to mitigate the causes of poor health identified by partner countries as constraints to growth, which can include improved health services, clean water and sanitation, education, and policy reform.
MCC is a major contributor to Power Africa, the U.S. Government's effort to double access to power in sub-Saharan Africa through investments in infrastructure, policy and regulatory reforms and institutional capacity building.
MCC celebrates Universal Children’s Day and recognizes the collaborative work of our partner countries to improve the lives of children and their families around the world by lifting them out of poverty and creating greater opportunity.
