Klout believes everyone has influence, and influence comes with responsibility. Klout for Good aims to help you leverage your influence to help make the world more a better place for everyone.

When we’re caught up in our own lives, sometimes it’s easy to forget that there are others in the world who are worse off than us. In Africa, there is a region called the Sahel just south of the Sahara desert that spans about 8 countries. About 15 million inhabitants of the Sahel region are currently being affected by a drought and food crisis. About 1 million of these people are children who are severely malnourished and may not see past their 5th birthday. Without proper nutrition, these children are also at high risk for stunted growth and other diseases.

UNICEF’s efforts to treat malnutrition focus on water, sanitation, hygiene, HIV and health education, but they need us to raise global awareness. Klout has teamed up with UNICEF to spread the #SahelNOW campaign about the critical situation and prevent these children from dying.

Listen to some personal stories of past memories living in the Sahel

Please spread the word about the #SahelNOW campaign on our Klout for Good program on your social networks, learn more about the cause at and join the movement!
