Revision as of 00:52, 1 March 2017

This is a list of organisations that we might recommend people apply to (though we haven't looked into most of them in detail ourselves). We don't necessarily endorse the organisations' work - one way to improve the world is go to an organisation with problems and improve it. As this is still a draft, an organisation not being on this list doesn't indicate we dislike it as we may have simply missed it.

They all work on problems we regard as highly pressing.
