JPAL: Small Commitment, Big Impact—Using Cost-Effectiveness in Personal Philanthropy

Dr. Rachel Glennerster is the executive director of MIT's Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL), a global network of professors who use Randomized Evaluations to figure out which poverty interventions actually work. She is also a founding member of Deworm the World, an organization that has treated 37 million children in Africa and India for parasitic worms. Dr. Glennerster's current research includes randomized evaluations of community-driven development in Sierra Leone, and empowerment of adolescent girls in Bangladesh.
