I know Evidence Action works in India among other countries. Same with SightSavers International

If you’re comfortable with a level of abstraction away from direct aid, JPAL does a lot of work in India implementing and evaluating the interventions that become opportunities for effective giving:


Hi Madhav, I work for Give For Good, a new donation platform that encourages people to donate in a new (more effective!) way. We don't select charities, but we did just add our first Indian charity. If you're interested to have a look, this is our website: www.giveforgood.world Best, Rik
