Since 2010, the Ujenzi Charitable Trust has supported the world’s poor and vulnerable by innovating ultra-low-cost medical solutions. Many of the disruptive technologies funded by Ujenzi have been incubated through our engineering lab, Vayu Global Health, which was also founded by Dr. Thomas Burke.
To create a unified, cohesive brand between our 501(c)(3) nonprofit and the Vayu engineering lab, we’ve decided to form the Vayu Global Health Foundation. In the beginning of 2020, we will rebrand our website and transition everything over to our new name.
Rest assured, our team and mission remain the same: to address the world’s most pressing health challenges.
We’re ready for another productive year! Here are 5 of the most exciting plans we have for 2020:
We will also be hiring a Business Manager to help us coordinate testing, commercialization, and integration of the Vayu-bCPAP within health systems in different countries.
We’ve made great strides this year and want to build on our momentum over the next 12 months.
After years of development and testing, our two primary devices, the uterine balloon and bubble CPAP, are finally poised to be mass distributed to the poor facilities that desperately need them.
Through your generous contributions and the help of the Gates Foundation and the National Institutes of Health, we’ve raised half of our fundraising goal this year! However, we do need more help to accomplish all that we have planned.
