As an alternative to sending payment directly to you, we like to offer our experts the option to donate their honorarium to one of our two chosen charities
Schistosomiasis Control Initiative (SCI)
The Schistosomiasis Control Initiative, based at Imperial College London, supports the treatment of schoolchildren in the developing world for parasitic worm infections. It was given charity evaluator GiveWell’s top rating for cost-effectiveness and impact in 2018, and can facilitate the treatment of one extra child for approximately every 0.30 GBP donated.
JPAL (The Jameel Abdul Latif Poverty Action Lab)
JPAL (the Jameel Abdul Latif Poverty Action Lab), an MIT-based research centre which seeks to inform global policy using scientific evidence, by conducting and funding trials and evaluations. Recent evaluations from their health arm include of peer effects on over-consumption of alcohol in US students, and free distribution vs. cost sharing of malaria nets in Bangladesh.
