Who We Are

Evidence Action scales evidence-based and cost-effective programs to reduce the burden of poverty. We fill the gap between research about what works and implementing solutions for those in need. Our programs include:

Deworm the World Initiative

Recognized as a GiveWell Top Charity for a fifth year running, uses schools to reach children at risk of worm infection. Deworm the World-supported programs reach over 200 million children each year, at an average cost of less than $0.50 per treatment per child. Deworming improves health, education, and long-term productivity as children grow into adults.

Dispensers for Safe Water

Provides safe water access for 4.7 million people across sub-Saharan Africa at a cost of just under $1 per person. GiveWell recognized the program as a 2017 Standout Charity; it installs free-of-charge chlorine dispensers near community water points, allowing individuals to disperse a pre-measured amount of chlorine into their jerrycans, keeping it safe for up to 2-3 days;

Please note: At this time we are no longer accepting donations for No Lean Season due to the updated recommendations from GiveWell and Evidence Action.
