• A Certain Cercaria

    Jul 14, 2016
    Not too long ago I was in Montana for a family reunion and it was fabulous! One afternoon my cousin took all the kids to the local lake for a paddleboard session. Later that afternoon, when everybody was home and showered, I noticed two of my cousin's sons were itching their legs quite a bit. I asked them what it was and Ryan said it was “swimmers itch.”

    Jul 07, 2016
    Recently I stood at East Cape lighthouse, the eastern most point on New Zealand's north island and thus the first place on which the sun shines in the Southern Hemisphere. Seeing the sunrise, it recalled for me the period when the END Fund was being created and what we were contemplating as impact investors in neglected tropical diseases (NTDs).

  • Ain’t No Mountain High Enough

    Jun 23, 2016
    The mantra of Team Sightsavers was inspired by the words immortalized by Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell - “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.” In two weeks, our five-strong team of Sightsavers staff will join the END Fund and 11 other dedicated individuals to climb to the summit of Africa’s greatest peak while raising funds and awareness for people going blind from neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) such as river blindness and trachoma.
