BENEFITING: Deworm the World

EVENT: 2013 ING New York City Marathon

EVENT DATE: Nov 03, 2013

THE STORY:

Christina Riechers wrote -

There is a gap between what research shows is effective in development and what happens in practice. Evidence Action scales proven development interventions and crafts resilient business models for long run success.

 

We only scale interventions whose efficacy is backed by substantial rigorous evidence. We target cost-effective interventions that can potentially improve the lives of millions. We identify innovative, appropriate financing mechanisms and build best practice operational models. We veraciously self-evaluate, learn, and improve our models for scaling with a commitment to transparency on progress, impact, and value for money.

 

Evidence Action assumes management and growth responsibility for two programs currently making a difference in the lives of millions of people in Africa and Asia:

1) Dispensers for Safe Water is an entrepreneurial program scaling the chlorine dispenser system – a proven innovation that dramatically expands access to water treatment at an extremely low cost. This year the program will reach over one million people in Africa providing safe drinking water to vulnerable populations.

2) The Deworm the World Initiative actively supports the scale-up of school-based deworming programs worldwide to improve children’s health, education, and long-term development. Free of intestinal worms, these children can concentrate better and get more out of schooling. We partner with governments to support their work, ensuring integration with other health and education initiatives and long-run financial sustainability for school-based deworming programs.

 

Evidence Action is a new organization working in partnership with an existing non-profit (Innovations for Poverty Action) to scale proven interventions to improve the lives of the poor in Africa and Asia. Evidence Action has applied for 501c3 status but in the meantime donations will be processed by our partner, Innovations for Poverty Action.

Christina! I was suppose to leave $10 at your place when I came over the other night and I totally forgot. Loren had said instead of paying for the tshirt, leave the $ in the bowl. So here is a second donation! AND more importantly, way to go on your first marathon! Congrats to you and Loren! 4 years ago
