Fight Poverty Campaign


Help Fight Poverty!

Do you want to help fight poverty but are not ready to commit to your own Pay It Forward Challenge? Make a donation to our campaign and help us make a difference for those that need it most.

100% of your donation will go to supporting an evidence based program designed to fight poverty in the most destitute places on earth by providing clean water and deworming children. Research supports that this is the most efficient way that donors can use their money for the purpose of fighting poverty.

What is the Pay It Forward Challenge? 

The Pay It Forward Challenge gives ordinary people the opportunity to work together to achieve extraordinary impact. It all starts with a desire to do the most good possible with the resources that we have. 

By working with the most efficient non-profits in the world we are able to Save Lives, Fight Poverty, and Save Souls in some of the most destitute places on earth. We rely on in-depth research and empirical evidence to guide the decision of where to send money so that we can make the greatest possible impact. 100% of every donation goes cause represented by the campaign. 

How does it work?

  1. Someone accepts the challenge and begins a Pay It Forward Chain. This page is evidence that the first step has been taken.  
  2. Passionate individuals show support by donating to the cause. We hope that you will be inspired enough to contribute!
  3. A few individuals take it upon themselves to accept the Pay It Forward Challenge so that the Pay It Forward Chain continues. This is really the most important part of each campaign. A single campaign cannot change the world on it's own. It is the culmination of individual efforts that will change the world for the better. 

What are the results?

Simply put, the results are amazing. Full details of how results are calculated can be found on each of our program pages. If this particular campaign continues on for just 10 "generations" we will have provided 107,500 people with clean drinking water for one year and dewormed 852,500 children

Visit the Save A Life, Fight Poverty, or Save A Soul program page to find out the results of all of our different programs. These detailed pages also include information about our research methods and program strategies.

  • More than 780 million people worldwide lack access to safe drinking water.
  • More than 3.4 million people die each year from water, sanitation, and hygiene-related causes. Unsafe drinking water is also a leading cause of diarrheal disease with nearly two billion cases each year globally.
  • An estimated 760,000 children under the age of five die from diarrhea each year, making childhood diarrhea caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation one of the leading causes of childhood mortality. (1)

      • Over 870 million preschool- and school-age children are at risk of parasitic worm infection. Over 600 million of these children remain untreated.
      • Worm infections interfere with nutrient uptake; can lead to anemia, malnourishment and impaired mental and physical development; and pose a serious threat to children’s health, education, and productivity. Infected children are often too sick or tired to concentrate at school, or to attend at all.
      • Worm infections are estimated to cause a loss of 200 to 524 million years of primary schooling. Parasitic worms exact a clear toll on human capital, hindering economic development in parts of the world that can least afford it. (2)
