04 Apr Bill Gates and ONE Launch the Living Proof Campaign in France: Smart Aid Saves Lives
Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
PARIS — Bill Gates, co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, will visit Paris today at an important time before France hosts the G8/G20 for the French launch of the Living Proof campaign in partnership with ONE.
The campaign challenges perceptions about aid, providing evidence of how smart, targeted aid is saving millions of lives, improving livelihoods, and building prosperous and stable societies. Gates will show that we are on the brink of some enormous successes but these will only become a reality if donor governments keep up their support for smart aid and encourage others to do the same. France is in a unique and powerful position through the G8 and G20 to keep up the momentum and leadership in building a better world for millions.
