Our Mission

The past 25 years have seen tremendous improvements in global poverty. Preventable child deaths have been cut in half and millions of kids are in school for the first time. There is still work to do. This year, 5.9 million kids will die from preventable causes before they reach their fifth birthday, 300,000 women will die from preventable pregnancy related causes, and 263 million kids will miss out on their chance to attend school.

For the first time in history, we have the resources that are necessary to end these deaths once and for all and make sure all kids have the chance to learn and grow. RESULTS advocates in Fargo are working to make this possibility a reality.

How We Work
