From the Ted Talk by Melinda Gates: Let's put birth control back on the agenda

Unscramble the Blue Letters

Last year, I was in niraboi, in the slums, in one called Korogocho — which lltealiry means when translated, "standing shoulder to shoulder." And I skpoe with this women's group that's pictured here. And the women telkad very openly about their family life in the slums, what it was like. And they talked quite intimately about what they did for birth control. Marianne, in the ctener of the screen in the red sweater, she summed up that entire two-hour cooanivrtsen in a phrase that I will never forget. She said, "I want to bring every good thing to this child before I have another." And I thought — that's it. That's universal. We all want to bring every good thing to our children.

Original Text

Last year, I was in Nairobi, in the slums, in one called Korogocho — which literally means when translated, "standing shoulder to shoulder." And I spoke with this women's group that's pictured here. And the women talked very openly about their family life in the slums, what it was like. And they talked quite intimately about what they did for birth control. Marianne, in the center of the screen in the red sweater, she summed up that entire two-hour conversation in a phrase that I will never forget. She said, "I want to bring every good thing to this child before I have another." And I thought — that's it. That's universal. We all want to bring every good thing to our children.
