Developing World Fund

About

Looking to make the most out of your donation? Donating to the Developing World Fund is the best way to make sure your money is going to substantially improving and saving lives. This fund includes vetted, high impact-per-dollar charities with two goals: treatment of preventable illnesses and alleviation of extreme poverty. Even a modest donation can have a big impact when you donate to highly effective organizations that are helping people to meet their most basic needs. For example, highly treatable diseases can be cured with very small amounts of money (Against Malaria Foundation can distribute a long lasting insecticidal net for every $5 donate. Anti-parasitic medicine can be distributed by Evidence Action for less than $1 a dose). Providing cash flow and microloans to people in the world’s poorest regions enables them to improve their quality of life and find increased independence. How many lives can you save with your donation today?

Helen Keller International, Inc.

Helen Keller International is a global health organization dedicated to eliminating preventable vision loss, malnutrition, and diseases of poverty. Co-founded by Helen Keller—and guided by her fierce optimism and belief in human potential—the organization delivers life changing health solutions to vulnerable families in places where the need is great but access to care is limited. In the U.S., Africa, and Asia, Helen Keller’s proven, science-based programs empower people to create opportunities in their own lives and build lasting change.

Microloan Foundation Usa Inc

Our vision is a world where all those living in poverty have the opportunity to build better lives for themselves and their families. Our mission is to provide the poorest women in sub-Saharan Africa with the tools and skills to enable them to work their own way out of poverty. By providing them with the skills and tools to start small businesses we support them to become self-sufficient for their daily needs. Over time the money they generate from their own effort helps to ensure food security, improve housing, access to healthcare, and an education for their children. We encourage them to make savings. Savings give them confidence in their ability to weather whatever life throws at them. With up to 99% of our loans repaid, we can use the money again and again to help more and more women.

GiveDirectly

GiveDirectly's mission is to reshape international giving, making unconditional, direct cash transfers to the poor the benchmark against which other interventions are evaluated. We believe the best way of achieving this mission is by maximizing cash delivered to the poor, with the ultimate aim of ending extreme poverty.

Evidence Action Inc

Evidence Action scales proven, rigorously evaluated development solutions to benefit millions of people around the world. We fill the gap between knowing “what works" and having impact at massive scale. We work according to the following principles: · Only scale interventions whose efficacy is backed by substantial rigorous evidence; · Target cost-effective interventions that can improve the lives of millions; · Identify innovative, appropriate financing mechanisms; · Build best practice operational models; · Voraciously self-evaluate, learn and improve our models for scaling. Evidence Action's two flagship programs are Deworm the World Initiative and Dispensers for Safe Water, serving a combined 40 million people in Southeast Asia and Eastern and Southern Africa.

Against Malaria Foundation

We fund and provide long-lasting insecticidal nets (LLINs) to protect those at risk from malaria.
