"Do One Better" podcast by Alberto Lidji; interviews with people at non-profits practicing EA
I recommend checking out the "Do One Better" podcast for people in the non-profit space practicing EA. For example this podcast from Craig Silverstein (Google's first employee) and Mary Obelnicki on establishing their charitable org, Echidna which is focused on girl's education in the developing world. Here's an excerpt which I found particularly insightful:
"one of the biggest takeaways from working in the developing world is to really think about the privilege of ‘access’ that wealthy organisations and wealthy communities have. And, as a philanthropist, who has access to you to make the ask easiest. It’s their friends and their families who can text them, ‘please support my organisation’ – well, if they’re their friends and from the community, they’re probably doing well financially. It’s very reinforcing, this privilege of access. And, the communities that need you the most and can benefit the most from your money are many, many social circles away from you. And, so how do you jump that gap? Well, you need to go looking for them; you need to put in the effort to find those organisations. You can’t expect them to come to you…
…people will acknowledge that the dollar or the pound can go further in the developing world in terms of impact “and so they should reflect to themselves, well if that’s true why aren’t I investing in those places now?”"
