PSI Pulse Spotlights Maverick Collective
With a new global agenda as ambitious as the Sustainable Development Goals, the need to innovate, increase the resources and harness the skills of motivated philanthropists has never been more important. Maverick Collective, co-founded by Her Royal Highness the Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway and Kate Roberts, with Melinda Gates as co-chair, was born to fill a vital gap.
The Collective began with 14 founding members.
Their programs link six health areas and pilot new approaches to some of the most challenging issues facing women and girls globally. The goal of the pilot projects is to learn fast and leverage evidence to expand successful programs. So far, Maverick Collective has leveraged US$ 60 million to support and scale projects.
Since Maverick Collective began, its work has reached over 300,000 women and girls across 13 countries.
