"Don’t worry too much about overlap. Chances are there is demand for many organizations doing the same thing or that you’ll fill a slightly different niche than the original organization."
I think this is good advice. There's a lot of (justified) focus on neglectedness in EA, but this is often confused with one-of-a-kind-ness, when in reality there can be multiple organizations providing the same service and it is still neglected/in short supply. EAs who want to help can found new projects that are basically just using a pre-existing template in another context/niche.
Super glad to see this. Demonstrating how EA fits into different schools of islamic thought does sound like a huge undertaking, but hopefully one with important and scaling returns. I would be very interested to know more about EA uptake rates in different (islamic) national contexts, like growth of EA Malaysia vs any efforts to bring EA to gulf countries.
Is there a central group, slack, or task force thinking about/working on bringing EA to muslims and vice versa? Thanks for writing up this post!
