The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative was launched today. The launch was live streamed via Facebook Live to millions of Zuckerberg’s followers worldwide. Chang Zuckerberg Initiative aims to advance humanity and promote equality.
Priscilla and Zuckerberg took the stage to explain the Initiative’s vision – “To cure, prevent and manage all diseases in our children’s life time”
They announced that $3Billion will be invested in advancing potentials and promoting equality. The fund will be used to cure diseases and to support personalized learning.
This is what the social couple have to say;
We want every child to grow up in a better world. Our hopes for the future center on two ideas: advancing human potential and promoting equality. We’ll focus first on personalized learning, curing disease, connecting people and building strong communities. We will make long-term investments over 25, 50 or even 100 years because our greatest challenges require time to solve.
“The only way that we reach our full human potential is if we’re able to unlock the gifts of every person around the world.”
— Priscilla Chan and Mark Zuckerberg
