Oakland, CA – October 2, 2012 – East Meets West is one of four nonprofits--out of a field of nearly 50 applicants-- chosen as inaugural grantees of the Alliance for Global Good's (AFGG) Innovation Fund.

The aim of the fee-for-service model is to create a steady source of revenue to enable the program to continue its longstanding mission--providing free dental treatment to impoverished children.
