BENEFITING: Deworm the World

ORGANIZER: Evidence Action

EVENT: Forum of Young Global Leaders

EVENT DATE: Sep 07, 2012

THE STORY:

Forum of Young Global Leaders wrote -

In one of the poorest regions of the world, Bihar, India, 1 out of 2 kids suffer from parasitic worms. But a simple pill can cure it. In fact, experts say it’s one of the best investments for global development.

When the pill isn’t taken, the parasitic worms can result in:

  • malnourishment and anemia
  • impaired brain development and stunted growth
  • abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea

Of course this leads to fewer school days and ultimately a much less productive life as adults.

When the pill is taken, everyone wins:

  • increased school attendance by 15 days per year
  • improved cognitive development (equal to half a year of schooling) for younger siblings
  • reduced worm transmission throughout the community
  • 20% higher wages as adults due to better lifetime health and education

600 million school-age kids are at high risk of parasitic worms worldwide. Deworm the World has reached 40 million kids in 27 countries over the past 4 years, including 17 million in 2011 in Bihar, India.

Join our success: please help us in Bihar, India, where the government and corporations have already guaranteed most of the funding.

All we need from you is a donation to cover $.02 per child.

With 17 million kids, a year of treatment will result in 1.25 million additional years of schooling for the kids of Bihar.

Our goal is $100,000 by August 31, 2012. Please join us and make a world of difference!

DONATE: a $100 donation transforms the lives of 5000 children.

FUNDRAISE: you can help make a lasting difference for millions of children.

As a token of our appreciation, all donors contributing $1000 or more will receive a signed copy of Poor Economics by Abhijit Banerjee and Esther Duflo, the 2011 Financial Times and Goldman Sachs Business Book of the Year.

Thank you!
