What does it take to change the world? How can each of us make a difference?
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Visitor Center takes visitors of all ages on an interactive journey that brings to life the connections we share with others across the globe.
Explore inventions like a life-saving mosquito net, an ingenious personal water filter and a storage device that can keep vaccines cool for 30 days or more. Learn about the unprecedented effort to eradicate polio in our lifetime. Immerse yourself in debates about education, health and poverty – and decide your own priorities. Tell the world what your foundation would do.
