Hey guys, to celebrate my birthday (as well as finishing my PhD!) I am starting a fundraiser!
This fundraiser will raise money for multiple causes: to protect vulnerable people from malaria, to fight against animal abuse, and to prevent child mortality by fighting preventable diseases in young kids living in poverty in India, Kenya, Nigeria, and Pakistan.
Your donations through this portal are tax deductible in the UK, US, and the Netherlands.
The money raised will be split equally into the following charities that have been recommended by charity evaluators due to their effectiveness:
1) Malaria Consortium. Fights malaria in high-risk regions, a preventable and treatable disease which threatens 3.2 billion people globally.
2) The Humane League. Exists to end the abuse of animals raised for food. 94% of all animals raised for food are on factory farms. This means that 130 billion farmed land animals suffer every day.
3) Deworm the World. Treats preventable (neglected tropical) diseases at a cost of around $0.50 per child. In 2022 alone, it helped treat 252 million children in India, Kenya, Nigeria, and Pakistan.
Eshita has been donating at least 10% of her monthly income to charities since 2019 when she first started her PhD. This month she is celebrating her 27th birthday as well as finishing her doctoral studies. This fundraiser is held in celebration of these two events.
Seasonal Malaria Chemoprevention
Malaria Consortium's seasonal malaria chemoprevention (SMC) programme distributes preventative antimalarial drugs to young children during times of peak malaria transmission.
Corporate Animal Welfare Campaigns
The Humane League exists to end the abuse of animals raised for food. It does this by influencing the policies of the world’s biggest companies, demanding legislation, and empowering others to take action and leave animals off their plates. We specifically recommend The Humane League’s work on corporate campaigns for chicken welfare.
Deworm the World Initiative
Deworm the World, a programme of Evidence Action, collaborates with governments to run mass deworming programmes in schools located in at-risk communities.
