Why We Exist

It is disturbing to note than in today’s world, half of the people are bound by poverty and oppression, with little or no hope of finding a way out. The following statistics reveal the situation faced by many:
  • More than 1 billion people live on less than one dollar per day; 2 billion live on less than two dollars.
  • More than 1 billion people do not have access to safe drinking water.
  • More than 3 billion people have no access to clean and proper sanitation.
  • More than 2 billion people do not have access to electricity.
  • Around 800 million people coming from under-developed and developing countries are malnourished with more than 75 percent of these living in the Asia-Pacific region.
  • In the year 2000, approximately 1 billion people could not read or write.
  • Less than 1 percent of what the world spends on weapons is enough to send all the children in the world to school.

These statistics are only indicative and constantly change, but we have seen little improvement over recent years. The current Global Financial Crisis has caused a critical delay in the achievement of the United Nation’s Millennium Development Goals to overcome poverty.
Effective Aid International is a non-profit organisation that aims to provide under privileged and disadvantage people with the basic necessities that enable them to survive, but beyond that to provide development to communities, thus empowering them to take charge of their own futures.
Effective Aid International is working to make this world a better place, offering relief from the daily suffering endured by many.
Effective Aid International believes in “less talk more action”. We simply get on with the job, not wanting to spend money on advertising that should be spent on changing people’s lives. Our commitment to our sponsors is to maximize the effect of their donations and minimise the amount spent on advertising and administration. We want to be known for our good deeds – evidenced by the life changing results in the individuals and communities with whom we work.
