The co-founder and former CEO of Microsoft, Bill Gates, is leaving the company´s board of directors. He praised the current leadership and said that it has never been stronger.

Gates said that he is stepping down to dedicate more time to philanthropic priorities. These include global health and development, education, and tackling climate chance. Gates said that he is looking forward to the next phase of his life.

Gates and his wife´s charity announced in February that it was donating up to $100 million dollars towards coronavirus relief efforts. He urged governments and companies to make vaccines and treatments available and affordable for people who are in greatest need.

Difficult words: board of directors (a group of people who supervise the activities of an organization), philanthropic (giving money to help people who are poor or sick, and supporting things that are good for society), tackle (to try to deal with a difficult problem).
