Melinda Gates donates to women and girls around the world; Jacinda Ardern gets $20 million

The Independent reported that as per her divorce agreement, Melinda is receiving US$12.5 billion from Bill. Of that, Melinda will be donating $1 billion to women and girls through her Pivotal Ventures group.

Unsurprisingly, Melinda is donating money to reproductive rights and reproductive equity groups among other groups and organisations. Additionally, Melinda is giving grants of $20 million to each of the following “global leaders”:

Dr. Alfiee Breland-Noble, founder of The AAKOMA Project;
Olympic gold medallist Allyson Felix;
filmmaker Ava DuVernay;
Crystal Echo Hawk, founder of IllumiNative;
Gary Barker, founder of Equimundo: Centre for Masculinities and Social Justice (?);
Hauwa Ojeifo, founder of She Writes Woman;
former New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern;
Nobel Peace Laureate Leymah Roberta Gbowee;
M. V. Lee Badgett, founding partner of Koppa: The LGBTI+ Economic Power Lab;
Richard V. Reeves, founding president of the American Institute for Boys and Men;
Sabrina Habib, co-founder and CEO of Kidogo; and
Shabana Basij-Rasikh, co-founder of the School of Leadership Afghanistan.
As Trust the Evidence noted in their weekly roundup last week: “Being a failed politician and lockdown artist certainly pays well.”

Why would Melinda give Ardern $20 million? A reason hasn’t been given but perhaps Ardern’s past gives us some clues.

From 2005 Ardern worked for two and a half years in the cabinet office of British Prime Minister Tony Blair. After working for Blair, Ardern’s political career rocketed.

In 2007 she was elected president of the International Union of Socialist Youth (IUSY). She remained IUSY’s president until over a year after her election to the New Zealand Parliament in 2008.

In 2014, Ardern was selected as a Young Global Leader, attending the World Economic Forum’s Forum of Young Global Leaders, founded by Klaus Schwab.

She became Prime Minister of New Zealand in 2017. As prime minister, she led the 2020 waves of covid lockdowns, removing most civil rights and virtually banning international travel to and from New Zealand – essentially turning the island nation into a prison. She is also a censorship and vaccine enthusiast.

In June 2020, Ardern had a teleconference with Melinda Gates. According to official records of the meeting, Melinda said “the US, and the world, saw New Zealand’s response and PM Ardern’s leadership as an exemplar.”

During the teleconference, Ardern also discussed pushing for “equitable distribution” of a future covid-19 vaccine, especially worrying that women from the smaller Pacific Island nations might not be reached by it.

By February 2022 Ardern’s popularity was plummeting. Ardern resigned as prime minister in January 2023 and gave her final speech to Parliament in early April 2023. At the time, her net worth was reportedly around $25 million.

In May 2023, Ardern was seen walking out of the BlackRock headquarters in New York. What started as a New York meeting with Ardern ended with a multi-billion-dollar handshake with her successor, Chris Hipkins. In August 2023, New Zealand teamed up with BlackRock to try to reach the target of 100 per cent renewable energy by 2030.

After leaving office, Ardern was made a Dame Grand Companion, one of New Zealand’s highest honours, and went on to become a trustee of the Earthshot Prize, a role she was selected for by Prince William, accepted dual fellowships at the Harvard Kennedy School and was appointed Special Envoy for the Christchurch Call.

The Christchurch Call works with 120 governments across the globe to eliminate terrorist and violent extremist content online. The Call was launched in May 2019 in response to the Christchurch terrorist attacks in March 2019.

In May 2024 the Christchurch Call Foundation was launched. New Zealand Prime Minister Christopher Luxon and French President Emmanuel Macron announced that the Christchurch Call would become a non-government organisation from 1 July 2024.

New Zealand taxpayer funding for the Call will end on 30 June, as support functions transfer to the new Secretariat, funded by the new Foundation; which has already attracted pledges from members of the Call Community and philanthropic donors, according to a press release from the New Zealand government.

At the time of writing, the Call Community consisted of supporters, partners and an advisory network. The supporters and advisory network are described as governments and tech companies that are committed to the Christchurch Call and civil society organisations, respectively. As well as governments, we can assume the “Call Community” that has pledged funding to the Foundation is one or more partners. The partner organisations listed on its website are:

CASM Technology
Cinder
Council of Europe
The Extremism and Gaming Research Network
The Global Community Engagement and Resilience Fund (GCERF)
Memetica
Moonshot
Muflehun
Point de contact
Tech Against Terrorism, an independent organisation supported by the UN and a range of public and private stakeholders
Tremau
UNESCO
