Possibly the best way to learn more is to sign up for our monthly newsletter which is full of information on our top charities, research and all sorts of other things.

Learn more about proven charities
Our proven charities are supported by a large body of high quality research that includes everything from randomized controlled studies to independent research.
Malaria is one of the biggest, and yet most preventable, global health issue facing the world today. As often is the case, it turns out prevention is the best approach.
Deworming is the most cost-effective way to increase school attendance because the effects of parasitic worms can make it difficult for an infected child to go to school. Fortunately, these worms can be treated for less than a dollar.
Giving a "cash transfer" is another way of saying that you're giving people money. That's it. Nothing fancy. Yet it's one of the most effective things you can do to fight poverty.
How are these areas chosen
We use the most reliable form of experiments known as randomized controlled trials. These allow you to see whether an intervention is effective compared to if it had not been done.
Why Scientifically proven?
Science consistently beats intuition. Test it out yourself with this game where you guess which charities work, which don't, and which actually cause harm.

What are Charity Scientists?
Charity scientists are people who want to revolutionize doing good the same way that science revolutionized medicine.
