Bill Gates, the former CEO of Microsoft and co-founder of the IT giant with Paul Allen, is scheduled to make an appearance on the popular podcast series "WTF is with Nikhil Kamath." He will be the first guest on the new segment, "People By WTF." 

This special segment will explore Gates' extensive experience in technology, his visionary insights on the future of global health, and his ongoing commitment to humanitarian causes through the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Recently, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, one of the largest philanthropies globally, has been supporting the distribution of Covid-19 vaccines worldwide in collaboration with Gavi, the Wellcome Trust, and the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations.

Both Bill Gates and Nikhil Kamath are involved in philanthropy, with Nikhil having pledged to donate 50 percent of his wealth to 'The Giving Pledge,' which was founded by Bill Gates and Warren Buffet.

Their collaboration extends to the educational initiative in Karnataka called the Young India Philanthropic Pledge (YIPP). The YIPP represents a commitment by India's young change-makers to dedicate a minimum of 25 percent of their wealth to drive global change, starting with India.

This joint endeavour underscores their shared commitment to improving educational outcomes and empowering the youth of India for a brighter future. "People by WTF" featuring Bill Gates is set to stream on all major platforms on June 14, 2024.

Meanwhile, Melinda French Gates, a prominent supporter of gender equality in the United States, is planning to allocate an additional $12.5 billion for her upcoming social work projects. The funds will be directed towards addressing persisting issues such as closing the gender pay gap and enhancing women's political engagement. 

This announcement follows her decision to step down as co-chair of the Gates Foundation, an organisation she co-founded with her ex-husband Bill Gates over 20 years ago.
