Doing good is simple.

Doing good effectively is not. 

The best ways to do good can be counterintuitive.
Rather than just doing what feels right, we use evidence and careful analysis to find the very best causes to work on.

EFFECTIVE ALTRUISM
We use evidence and careful analysis to find the very best causes to work on and then help you identify how to do the most good you can, with the time and money you have.

SOUTHEAST ASIA:
Best Giving Opportunities You Need to Know
What's the top poverty-related issue in Southeast Asia? The answer is stunting. Our research has revealed this as a very important issue in the region. Targeting child malnutrition is very cost-effective but still neglected. With 25.8% of children under five affected in Southeast Asia, focusing on this issue can dramatically improve and impact hundreds of thousands of lives.
