100&Change winner

We are honoured that the MacArthur Foundation has selected this programme as the winner of its 100&Change competition, a one-time $100 million grant to "make measurable progress toward solving a significant problem of our time." This award allows the IRC and Sesame Street to create what will be the largest early childhood intervention in the history of humanitarian response. We want to thank the MacArthur Foundation for making the transformational investment needed to give refugee children a path forward for generations to come. Learn more.

About our partnership

We’re working together to give more than 9 million children in Syria, Jordan, Lebanon and Iraq the support they need to learn, grow and thrive. We will combine Sesame Street’s history of proven educational content with the IRC’s decades of expertise in conflict zones to help these young refugees and their families cope with crisis and build a brighter future. Learn more.
