Overcoming poverty in all its aspects.
Volunteering in your Local Community
There are a lot of great reasons to volunteer in your area. For one thing, volunteering gives you a chance to meet more people and network with people that have similar interests to yours. Business professionals should take advantage of the opportunities that volunteering offers to make new contacts and be seen in the community.
ONE is a grassroots campaign and advocacy organization backed by more than 2 million people who are committed to the fight against extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa.
The Millennium Development Goals are a unique opportunity to finally end poverty.
In 2008 during a four month backpacking trip through India, our founder and CEO, Hemley Gonzalez, experienced firsthand the abuse and horrible conditions which men and woman were subjected to under a worldwide famous charity that collects millions of dollars from its donors but largely mismanages such donations. Disgusted and disappointed by this experience, he began working in the slums alongside other friends and volunteers who also felt their efforts were positively and effectively changing the lives of those disadvantaged families they came into contact with.

What is GiveWell?
GiveWell is an independent, nonprofit charity evaluator. We find outstanding giving opportunities and publish the full details of our analysis to help donors decide where to give.
Unlike other charity evaluators, which focus solely on financials (assessing administrative or fundraising costs), we focus on how well programs actually work – i.e., their effects on the people they serve.
VillageReach improves access to healthcare for remote, underserved communities around the world. We partner with governments, businesses, nonprofits, and other organizations to improve the performance and reliability of health systems in the most inaccessible and isolated last mile communities.
Our mission is to save lives and improve health by increasing healthcare access and quality for remote, underserved communities.
