We are thrilled to be on the GiveWell recommended charity list this year again for the work we do at the Deworm the World Initiative. It is a great honor.
We welcome your support to expand large-scale, school-based deworming programs to additional countries in the coming year, and continue programs with demonstrable impact in places where we already work.
GiveWell recommends the Deworm the World Initiative because of our:
- “Focus on a program with a strong track record and excellent cost-effectiveness.
- Strong process for assessing whether the deworming programs it supports are successfully deworming children.
- Standout transparency – it has shared significant, detailed information about its programs with us.”
GiveWell is dedicated to finding outstanding giving opportunities and publishing the full details of their analysis to help donors decide where to give. Unlike charity evaluators that focus solely on financial statements, assessing administrative or fundraising costs, GiveWell conducts in-depth research aiming to determine the impact a given program achieves (in terms of lives saved or improved) per dollar spent.
GiveWell recommends very few charities and even fewer for consecutive years, so we are especially pleased to be on the list of the world’s most effective charities again in 2016.
We know that you, our donors, give with your heart and your head, looking for evidence of impact and a solid analysis of where your giving yields the most good. We very much appreciate that. We look forward to a year ahead with more evidence and energy to scale what works in development to millions more people.
