100 & Change
Sesame Workshop and the International Rescue Committee named semi-finalists in MacArthur Foundation’s 100&Change competition
We teamed up with the IRC to deliver life-changing education to refugees.
Now we could be awarded $100 million to help us do it.
Today, there are 12 million displaced children under the age of eight–children who suffer the effects of violence and neglect that can lead to toxic stress and lifelong damage.
Together, we can change that. The IRC knows how to reach these children, and Sesame Street knows how to inspire them. We’ve already begun our work to help refugees–100&Change can help us reach millions more.
…and here’s what Big Bird has to say on the subject in our application video for the grant.
