Soros pledges support to Sachs

George Soros has pledged $50 million to a project led by Jeffrey D. Sachs to help people in Africa.

According to Sachs, his project, Millenium Promise, builds on the work done in improving health status to the next essential phase: economic growth in rural areas. The project distributes fertilizer and high-yield seeds, and helps people build small-scale irrigation. Below is a video about the project with Sachs and Angelina Jolie. You'll like it, I promise!
