Supporting Children in Afghanistan and Pakistan
CharityWatch, a leading charity watchdog that issues letter grade (A+ to F) ratings of nonprofit groups, announces this list of highly efficient charities currently involved in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
In light of our concerns about Greg Mortenson and Central Asia Institute, it is important to remember that there are many ethical and efficient charities working in the region. We encourage donors not to abandon the cause due to this scandal.
CharityWatch identifies the following charities that receive an “A” or “B” grade based on the portion of their budget going to program services and their fundraising efficiency. Contact the organizations below for information on specific relief operations now underway.
These charities perform favorably in relation to CharityWatch benchmarks:
1) A charity should spend at least 75% of its budget on program services.
2) A charity should spend no more than $25 to raise $100.
Contact charities directly to find out if they provide the specific types of aid that you would like to fund, e.g., emergency relief, health care, infrastructure development, education, etc.
