Protecting 7,800 people from malaria as they sleep at night with long-lasting insecticide nets

May 2019

Against Malaria

Charity Partner
Our May 1% will buy 4,300 malaria nets to be used by 7,800 people. Each net lasts three years so we’ll be providing 8.5 million nights of sleep, safe from the bites of disease-carrying mosquitoes. They will prevent an estimated 3,000 cases of malaria and save three lives. Our partner this month are the outstanding Against Malaria Foundation. You can track your money's progress on their giving portal.

The Against Malaria Foundation (AMF) is GiveWellGiving What We Can and The Life You Can Save’s top-ranked charity and has been for twelve  years. AMF is frequently described as the global Effective Altruism movement’s #1 charity given the top-billing it achieves year after year judged on impact and effectiveness. AMF’s running costs (which are small as a result of the extraordinary efficiency with which AMF operates, and which are ~1% of revenues each year) are funded independently meaning 100% of public donations buys nets. Nets are distributed though carefully selected partner organisations with high levels of data-driven accountability and transparency accompanying each net distribution. Be One Percent’s donations to AMF, and the specific net distributions they fund, are shown here. Donations welcome!
