After extensive review processes, PHC has been recognized as a top organization by numerous non-profit external evaluators including Giving What We Can, The Life You Can Save, GiveWell, Agora, and Altruist.

PHC was also awarded the Ashoka ChangeMakers Award in 2010.


Giving What We Can (GWWC) is a charity evaluator that advocates for people to make significant donations to the most cost-effective causes and charities. It is a project of the Centre for Effective Altruism. GWWC evaluates charities and builds a community of members donating 10% of their income to the most effective organizations in the world. PHC has been chosen as one of GWWC’s top promising charities.


The Life You Can Save (TLYCS) was founded as an advocacy and educational outreach organization to raise awareness for the 700 million men, women, and children who live in extreme poverty. Each year, TLYCS publishes a list of the world’s best charities that aid the global poor; PHC has been chosen as one of these charities. Each of their seventeen recommended charities has a demonstrated record of effectively combating the causes and the symptoms of global poverty. Historically, every dollar they spend on outreach and education moves an additional three to four dollars to effective charities.

GiveWell is a nonprofit dedicated to finding outstanding giving opportunities and publishing the full details of their analysis to help donors decide where to give.

Unlike charity evaluators that focus solely on financials, assessing administrative or fundraising costs, GiveWell conducts in-depth research aiming to determine how much good a given program accomplishes (in terms of lives saved, lives improved, etc.) per dollar spent. Rather than try to rate as many charities as possible, they focus on the few charities that stand out most in order to find and confidently recommend the best giving opportunities possible. PHC is currently being evaluated by GiveWell. We have successfully make it through the first phase of the evaluation and are eager to continues our  discussions with GiveWell through the remainder of the process.


Agora for Good is a marketplace that connects donors to the organizations that are most effectively solving the global challenges they care about, and that helps effective organizations raise the funds they need and share their impact with their supporters. PHC has been vetted and approved as an organization that is effectively solving global challenges.


Altruist selects effective, life-changing nonprofits that are addressing our society’s pressing issues. Whether it’s disaster relief or forward-thinking research, medical aid or human rights, these organizations are creating a better world. We support them by giving together. PHC has been chosen as one of their stand-out nonprofits.
