Unsere Story

Every day thousands of children die as a result of extreme poverty. Climate change continues unabated and more than 60 billion animals live and die in horrible conditions every year.

This is not the world we want to live in. The good news is this is not the world we have to live in.

We are part of the richest generation in human history. The world has never had more knowledge and resources than today. We have a historic opportunity to end extreme poverty with all its terrible consequences once and for all , to stop climate change and to end factory farming.

But it’s not just about winning this fight in the first place: it’s about winning it as quickly as possible. Because every day that we reach our goal later, thousands of children die and millions of animals that don’t have to die. And every day it gets a little warmer on earth.

That is why it is so important to us at effective-donate.org to support the most effective approaches and the best aid organizations in the world. With every euro, they can achieve a multiple of what an average organization is capable of.

The fact that the selection of these organizations is based on scientific studies and extensive evaluations is not an expression of cold-hearted optimization. On the contrary: Precisely because every single life counts and the future of the planet is really important to us, it is so important to find and support the really best aid organizations.

That’s why we do what we do.

And that’s why we invite you to join us and donate to the organizations recommended here.
