A Pledge That Will Change Your Life
Do you have a giving philosophy? Even if you think you're a 'small donor', your giving can add up to a sizeable amount over the years. Hear from Giving What We Can (GWWC) Pledgers on how they have been very thoughtful in how they donate. Their insights might help you give better.

EFFECTIVE CHARITIES:
Perspectives of Charity Evaluators
With billions of charitable dollars given to both local and overseas charities each year, it is important to ask how effective the work of charities are. Learn how charity evaluators look at making sense of the effectiveness of social impact organisations and their programmes.

GOOD INTENTIONS:
What’s the Harm in Volunteering Overseas?
We always start with good intentions. But does it always mean the people we're trying to help always benefit? Our speaker will be bringing to our awareness how some ways of doing good might actually cause harm.

12:10 PM - 12:50 PM


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.

80,000 HOURS:
What Is Your Career Impact?
You’ll spend about 80,000 hours working in your career: 40 hours a week, 50 weeks a year, for 40 years. So how to spend that time is one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make. Choose wisely, and you will not only have a more rewarding and interesting life, you’ll also be able to help solve some of the world’s most urgent problems.

03:10 PM - 04:00 PM
