TakePart is a place for people who care about the world and want to live their lives accordingly. We feature articles by journalists, activists, and experts on everything from global health and development to climate change and human rights. As the digital division of Participant Media—the folks who brought you Food, Inc., An Inconvenient Truth, and The Cove—TakePart is a place to read about issues that matter and take meaningful action through vetted petitions, pledges, donations, and more.
TakePart World, funded in part by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, is our news vertical dedicated to global health and development. To many people, the developing world often means poverty, disease, and incomprehensible war. But there's an impressive amount of creativity, ingenuity, and drive springing up from the places you least expect. We’re here to share these stories and shine a light on the ideas, innovations, and movements driving historic progress on the frontlines of global change.
