Evidence Action

Who We Are:

Evidence Action scales evidence-based and cost-effective programs to reduce the burden of poverty for millions of people. Our approach fills the gap between research about what works and solutions for people in need. We operate in ten countries across the globe and positively impact the lives of hundreds of millions every year in a measurable way.

What We Offer:

1) Dispensers for Safe Water is a proven, innovative, and low-cost approach to increase adoption rates of chlorination for safe drinking water. Chlorine disinfects drinking water against most bacteria including those causing cholera and diarrheal disease while protecting water from recontamination for up to 72 hours after dosing. Chlorinating water also means that people do not need to boil their water to disinfect it, saving time and preserving natural resources. 2) No Lean Season reduces the negative effects of seasonality on the poorest in rural agricultural areas by enabling labor mobility that increases incomes. It is a new program that we are testing in Evidence Action Beta's portfolio, based on rigorous experimental evidence. The program gives a travel subsidy of $20 to very poor rural laborers so they can send a family member to a nearby city to find a job during the period between planting and harvesting. This is the time in rural areas when there are no jobs, no income, and when families miss meals. This seasonal poverty affects 600 million people around the world.2) No Lean Season reduces the negative effects of seasonality on the poorest in rural agricultural areas by enabling labor mobility that increases incomes.
