We provide, coach and promote qualified specialists with autism. In return, we receive subsidies from the state (from which the companies can also benefit) and income from the companies.

No Lean Season

We give a travel subsidy of $20 to very poor rural laborers so they can send a family member to a nearby city to find a job during the period between planting and harvesting. This is the time in rural areas when there are no jobs, no income, and when families miss meals. This seasonal poverty affects 600 million people around the world.

Effective Altruism Funds

We designed Effective Altruism Funds to help individuals give as effectively as possible. It’s kind of like a mutual fund, but for maximizing the effectiveness of your donations, rather than your investment returns.
We’ve set up four funds which cover a set of problems that are important, tractable, and neglected. They are managed by experts in the field who work at one of the largest and most respected foundations in the world. These fund managers will pool the community’s donations and research the most impactful places to donate your money so that you can do the most good.
