Through a generous grant from the PSEG Foundation, we will have the opportunity to create a special photography and video interview project that will teach students about what an energy company looks like and where our energy comes from. A gallery of photographs and interviews will introduce students to 100 people from PSEG that statistically represent the company, and who will provide answers to some of the students' questions about energy, from the basic to the complex.

Through a generous grant from The Merck Foundation, we are creating a series of videos profiling frontline health workers from across the globe. Traveling to such disparate locations as crowded train stations in New Delhi, India, the remote hollows of Appalachia, Merck is helping us share stories of individuals who are making a difference in their communities through better health care. We believe that with an increase in quality and access, underserved populations can be given the tools to live longer, healthier lives.

The 100 People Foundation is grateful for the generous support of Intel, our partner in developing the Global Issues Through our Lens program, which engages students in a rich dialogue about global issues and features winners from the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair.

The Intel International Science and Engineering Fair, a program of Society for Science & the Public, is the world's largest pre-college science fair competition. Each year, more than 6 million young scientists from around the world vie to attend. 1,500 are selected as finalists to share ideas, showcase cutting edge ideas and compete for over USD 4 million in awards and scholarships.

100 People and Intel also collaborated on a series of videos called "Where Does Innovative Thinking Come From?" which profiles four very special finalists at the ISEF 2011 in Los Angeles. The videos were then featured at the Compass Summit.
