Note: This grant was awarded while the Open Philanthropy Project was a partnership between GiveWell and Good Ventures.

Good Ventures awarded a grant of $250,000 to the Schistosomiasis Control Initiative (SCI) for general operating support, via the Imperial College Foundation, in recognition of GiveWell’s No. 3 charity ranking in 2012. We expect this grant to help us learn about the challenges of scaling up a proven program and coordinating with country governments. See GiveWell’s review of SCI for more about its activities and to follow its progress.
