Caplow Children’s Prize

The $1 million Caplow Children’s Prize is the largest humanitarian prize dedicated to saving children’s lives in the world today. Recognizing that nearly 18,000 children under five die from preventable causes every day, the Children’s Prize works outside of traditional channels of foreign aid and philanthropy to uncover and fund the most impactful, credible, and cost-effective, action plans for reducing child mortality.
