Pro Mujer (2013 IF Grant Recipient)

Organization’s Geographic Region of Focus: Bolivia

Alliance Areas of Concern:  Health, Education, Poverty

Challenge: Chronic diseases—obesity, high blood pressure, elevated glucose levels, etc.—are a major health burden, particularly for the poor.

Solution: Building upon existing financial services infrastructure and resources to deliver health services, implement a new health plan addressing these concerns designed to be client focused, market‑driven, and self‑sustaining.

Excerpted from the Proposal:

“Chronic diseases now account for 68% of deaths in Latin America, yet it is not a public‑sector focus, leaving many people vulnerable to these high‑mortality illnesses. Hypertension, obesity, diabetes, and breast and cervical cancer are rampant; these conditions often go untreated until costly complications arise because symptoms are not detected until an advanced stage.

Pro Mujer Bolivia (PMB) has provided health services to clients since it began programming in 1990 and is now testing and rolling out a new health program that focuses on chronic illness. This program is designed to be client focused, market‑driven, and self‑sustaining, ensuring that clients can afford to access services by focusing on convenience and providing a payment mechanism.

The idea is based on the premise that Pro Mujer can leverage existing financial services infrastructure and resources to deliver health services. In 2009, the organization began an ambitious project to re‑work the health model in León, Nicaragua, clarifying the program objectives and nearing financial sustainability before replicating it in Juliaca, Peru. The program is now being rolled out in other regions of both countries and will be launched in LaPaz and El Alto, Bolivia in fall of 2013.

The health program offers three service lines: a universal component of basic screening and educational services, a pre‑paid health package, and a broad offering of additional primary care services on a pay‑per‑service basis. All three lines have different income‑generating structures that together create a profitable program. The model is projected to reach maturity in El Alto and La Paz by the end of 2015. Because the viability of the program has already been tested and affirmed, and because interest in the Bolivian market of the product has already been established by means of demand/supply studies, this program is poised for success in achieving financially sustainable social impact.”

Proud to announce our newest partner


Leonard Kaplan’s creation of the Alliance for Global Good was the expression of his passionate philanthropy.  It’s also the logical outgrowth of all that came before it.  Together with his wife and philanthropic partner Tobee, and through a family foundation later renamed TOLEO, they gave unselfishly of resources and time to improve their community and the world for more than twenty-five years.

Tobee & Leonard Kaplan

Tobee & Leonard Kaplan

The Alliance’s focus on five areas of giving—health, education, environment, poverty, and world relations—is mirrored in Leonard’s past.  He has made major gifts to Duke University Medical Center and the Duke Comprehensive Cancer and Heart Centers, to the Lineberger Cancer Center at UNC Chapel Hill, to the Cardiac Rehabilitation program at Moses Cone Hospital, and had a leadership position at the Greensboro Cardiac Rehabilitation Program.  In 2004, Leonard and Tobee built the new building for the Women’s Resource Center in Greensboro. He created scholarships for residents of Guilford County to attend North Carolina colleges and universities, and was a founding donor of Elon University Law School.  Critically, in partnership with the Kellogg Foundation, Leonard helped create the Center for Organizational Leadership, a philanthropic studies program (which was one of first nationally to educate non-profit executives).

“Everyone wants to leave something to their grandchildren.”

“The money won’t matter if the world they live in is so far gone,” Kaplan says. “The opportunity now is to take some of what might become their inheritance, and use it soon to make the world a better place.”

Addressing poverty, Leonard made possible the building of two houses for Habitat for Humanity, and by providing food for hungry people both close to home in Greensboro, and as far abroad as the former Soviet Union.   The Kaplans were staunch supporters of Trickle Up, which provides grant financing to women in the developing world who want to start their own microenterprise.

Leonard gave not only of his wealth, but also of his time and expertise, taking on leadership positions in many organizations and campaigns such as the Greater Greensboro United Way DeToqueville Society, and as a Core Member of ACTION Greensboro, a nonprofit dedicated to improving public education, revitalization of downtown Greensboro, and leveraging economic development.

Active in their community of faith, the Kaplans built a new building for the Greensboro Jewish Federation, and for the Hillel youth organization at U.N.C., Chapel Hill.  He served on the board of the Jewish Foundation of Greensboro, and on that of the national Hillel organization, and was a founder of Camp Ramah Darom.

Viewing giving as a responsibility of affluence, Leonard led by example, and encouraged others to do the same.  He created Wealth & Giving, an educational program designed to inspire the largest wealth holders in this country to be more generous.  The Alliance continues that work by promoting and providing donors with opportunities for effective and efficient giving.
