Max Foundation

Everything to save a child's life

About us


The mission of Max Foundation is to give children a healthy start in life and save as many children’s lives as possible. We want to do this in the most effective and sustainable way. Every day, nearly 16,000 children under the age of five die unnecessarily from infectious diseases and diarrhoea. Max Foundation believes that a business driven and integrated approach can tackle the roots of child mortality, morbidity and impaired child growth. And that this is best done through collectively addressing practices in the areas of WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene), nutrition and Sexual Reproductive Health or SRH (including safe motherhood). We call this Max-WASH.
