Related to this thread, Rory Stewart is speaking on "Can EA convince governments to make international aid effective" at the EA Christian 2023 annual conference.

Excellent! Looking forward to seeing you there.

This looks excellent! I'm keen to support this in any way I can.

Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.

Forget fish. Just send cash.


Popular myth says "teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime".

But 200+ studies say "give a poor man cash, lift him out of poverty".

Let's stick to the research.



Teach a man to fish, feed him for a year (maybe).

Give a poor man cash, lift him out of poverty.

Hi Matt, I run EA for Christians. 

This might not be the answer you're looking for but FWIW if you (or anyone reading) have honest doubts about the Christian faith, and you feel you would benefit from respectful discussions about a specific faith/EA topic, I welcome you at our weekly discussion socials

Most who come are Christian. But I have been told also by non-Christians that it is a welcoming and truth-seeking space.

I'm very excited to see this. EA for Christians is working with local EAs in Kenya and Nigeria to do grassroots outreach. We would love to see more EA community building in an African context, including outreach that builds networks to impactful careers that don't require difficult-to-obtain western visas.


Thank you for the post!

Are you aware of catholic institutes/seminars that discuss themes of AXR? Have you considered starting one?

I could connect you to other Catholics in the EA community who are interested. There's a vibrant community of Christians engaging with these themes.

Hi Sean,

I would be glad to connect with you to discuss EA and religion (especially Christianity!) Would you have time for a short call about this? https://calendly.com/jdbauman
