Note: This grant was awarded while the Open Philanthropy Project was a partnership between GiveWell and Good Ventures.
Good Ventures awarded a grant of $1.5 million to the Deworm the World Initiative (DtWI) for general operating support via Evidence Action1 in recognition of DtWI’s earning a “top charity” ranking from GiveWell in 2013. See GiveWell’s review of DtWI for more about its activities and to follow its progress.
The Deworm the World Initiative is led by Evidence Action. This grant was made in the form of unrestricted support to Evidence Action, with an informal understanding that we intend these funds to support the Deworm the World Initiative, in line with GiveWell’s recommendation and our own preference for providing unrestricted support to organizations.
