Donate Along With Us Funding Area: Poverty Alleviation

The Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL) serves as a focal point for development and poverty research based on randomized trials. The objective is to improve the effectiveness of poverty programs by providing policy makers with clear scientific results that help shape successful policies to combat poverty. J-PAL works with NGOs, international organizations, and others to evaluate programs and disseminate the results of high quality research.

Our Involvement: The Marty Tomberg Charitable Fund has financially supported this organization.

Projects We Support

 
Deworm the World Initiative

Deworm the World works with YGLs in all different sectors to leverage their unique talents to increase deworming: those working in schools are encouraged to incorporate deworming into their existing programmes, those with access to leaders in policy circles are asked to bring forward the issue of deworming, and those with experience fund-raising and conducting media campaigns are asked to direct part of their energy to this task. In order to support these efforts, Deworm the World is developing “kits” that can be used by YGLs engaged in specific tasks. Deworm the World is also establishing partnerships with leaders in the deworming field to develop sustainable models for nation-wide implementation. J-PAL researchers Esther Duflo and Michael Kremer, who are both members, volunteered that J-PAL could coordinate this initiative as part of J-PAL’s mission to disseminate the results of randomized evaluations.

Support Dates: October, 2007 – November, 2008
 

Developing Country Environment and Energy Initiative

Funding will support the creation of a Phase I of the Developing Country Environment and Energy Initiative. This paper will review the most critical gaps in knowledge about the intersection of development, environment, and energy. Phase II will be to fund a new body of randomized evaluations in in environment and energy and engage in policy outreach to scale up policies proven to be effective. The result of this project is a review paper which is a critical first step by providing a theoretical framework to guide research funded in Phase II of the initiative.

Support Dates: March, 2012 – March, 2013
