Thinking of a Career in Emergency Management?
- BY Nicole Pelette
Evidence Action aims to be a world leader in scaling evidence-based and cost-effective programs to reduce the burden of poverty for hundreds of millions of people in the poorest places. Last year Deworm the World reached over 270 million children by partnering with governments to launch, scale, and sustain mass school-based deworming programs. Meanwhile Dispensers for Safe Water provided 4 million people across rural Africa with clean water, saving thousands of young lives. The approach relies on an innovative and human-centric design to deliver clean water at the source. Our Evidence Action Accelerator (previously Beta) builds and tests our next generation of programs, seeking bold and scalable solutions with a focus on health, water and sanitation, and nutrition.
Evidence Action has a presence across 10 countries, with major offices in Nairobi, Kenya; Delhi, India; and Washington, D.C. Our programs have been recognized by GiveWell, the Skoll Foundation, The Life You Can Save, Giving What We Can, and covered in the Economist, NPR, and the New York Times.
