SCI has been selected to receive donations this year from MaxMind, an industry-leading provider of IP intelligence and online fraud detection tools, based in Waltham, Massachusetts. SCI was selected on the strength of the Givewell recommendation (www.givewell.org ).
The donations will be used to expand SCI’s coverage of treatments for school aged children against schistosomiasis and intestinal worms in rural areas of Africa. By supporting these treatments, MaxMind will be bringing improved health and education to millions of vulnerable children.
