With the help of GiveWell, we recommend highly-effective charities that combat the causes and symptoms of extreme poverty. If we give collectively and effectively, we can reduce needless suffering and eradicate problems like malaria and child malnutrition. We motivate people to donate 1% or more of their income to the world’s most cost-effective charities, every month, for life. We update this portfolio every year, so your donations are always as impactful as possible.
The world is more advanced than ever, yet 7,500 children under the age of 5 die every day from preventable, poverty related causes. Roughly 10% of the world's population live in extreme poverty, on less than $1.90 (USD) per day. Most people want to help, but don’t know how. The problem seems too large, too distant, too complex. However, much of this suffering can be easily prevented or mitigated with simple, cost-effective interventions.
Our quality of life is probably no different with only 99% of our salaries. But with that 1%, we can change the lives of those in extreme poverty.
