With limited resources, how can we do the most good?

Most of us want to improve the world. We see suffering, injustice and death, and are moved to do something about them. But working out what that "something" is, let alone actually doing it, can be a difficult and disheartening challenge.

Effective Altruism is a response to this challenge. 

What is Effective Altruism?

Effective altruism is a philosophical movement and community focused on maximising the good you can do over the course of your life with your limited time, money, and resources. The movement develops and shares practical tools and recommendations regarding how to prioritize social action, including in one’s career, projects, and donations. The community around this movement provides opportunities to assist each other in our efforts to improve the world.
