With the support of Caterpillar Inc. and the help of our partners, the Foundation is investing $200 million over the next three years in programs that benefit the most powerful source of change on Earth – adolescent girls. When we improve the potential of young women to end poverty for themselves, their families and their communities, and help them prosper, it's the most powerful path to sustainable progress and growth. An investment no one can overlook. More information available at: http://www.caterpillar.com/sustainability/caterpillar-foundation
