Giving What We Can: Cambridge, Cambridge RAG and CUiD are excited to host Rob Mather, founder and CEO of the The Against Malaria Foundation (AMF). Rob studied chemical engineering at Trinity Hall, Cambridge(1984).

AMF is the gold standard for giving. It has been ranked by GiveWell as the most cost effective charity in the world (2012, 2013, 2015, 2016 and 2017). AMF works to prevent illness and death from malaria by distributing anti-malarial bednets. GiveWell estimates AMF can save a child’s life for $2,838 (£1964).

Rob will talk about his experiences setting up and running such a high-impact organisation. He is one of the most inspiring and effective individuals in the non-profit sector, and all-round awesome guy.

More reasons to get excited: this is also the launch event for THE BIG MATCH during which Giving What We Can: Cambridge and Giving What We Can: Oxford will match any donations to AMF up to £30,000. Get hyped!

Everyone should come because free (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) drinks and snacks will be provided (!) and there will also be an opportunity to chat afterwards with Rob.

This talk is part of the Effective Altruism: Cambridge series.
