VillageReach donations received

This is an online portal with information on donations that were announced publicly (or have been shared with permission) that were of interest to Vipul Naik. The git repository with the code for this portal, as well as all the underlying data, is available on GitHub. All payment amounts are in current United States dollars (USD). The repository of donations is being seeded with an initial collation by Issa Rice as well as continued contributions from him (see his commits and the contract work page listing all financially compensated contributions to the site) but all responsibility for errors and inaccuracies belongs to Vipul Naik. Current data is preliminary and has not been completely vetted and normalized; if sharing a link to this site or any page on this site, please include the caveat that the data is preliminary (if you want to share without including caveats, please check with Vipul Naik). We expect to have completed the first round of development by the end of December 2019. See the about page for more details. Also of interest: pageview data on analytics.vipulnaik.com, tutorial in README, request for feedback to EA Forum.

Mulago Foundation2,450,000.0032008--https://mulagofoundation.org/Portfolio/villagereach-- Donation date is not a single date but rather when funding began. Rainer fellow in . Mulago’s reasons for investing: “Too often, health systems in poor countries can't reach the 'last mile' with life-saving health services. VillageReach puts high-performance logistics, human resource and inventory management systems in place to ensure that vaccines, medicines, and supplies get to the people who need them most. Their flagship project in Mozambique continues to deliver significant improvements in vaccinated children, dramatic reductions in drug stock-outs and reduced government operating costs. They're now a leading player in the international effort to prioritize and execute a re-design of vaccine supply chains across Africa.”.
