      Leaders in the social sector like yourself are catalysts of change. To help you create maximum impact on the ground for every rupee spent, we are hosting an interactive workshop that brings global impact and 'giving' best practices to India.

      The workshop is part of the High Impact Philanthropy Initiative, co-created by The Life You Can Save (TLYCS) and Samhita, and supported by Tata Trusts. 

      Facilitated by Charlie Bresler, Executive Director, TLYCS, the workshop will engage you in an interactive and hands on session on the art and science of effective giving. At the workshop, you will:

  • Immerse yourself in the three key aspects of effective giving - impactful, informed and intentional (3i framework) and use them in a practical activity, Giving Games, while learning about effective programmes being executed in India. 
  • Engage in discussions around cost-effectiveness, busting the myth about overhead costs, using data and evidence to design programmes, factoring in brand or personal motivations to bring about social impact. 

High Impact Philanthropy (HIP)

      HIP, co-created by Samhita and TLYCS and supported by Tata Trusts, is an initiative that engages and empowers people and companies to support evidence-backed, highly effective interventions that transform lives and advance India's development goals. The Life You Can Save (TLYCS) is an entity founded by Peter Singer, a political philosopher, and professor of bioethics at Princeton University. 

SDG Philanthropy Platform

      The SDG Philanthropy Platform is a global initiative that connect philanthropy with knowledge and networks that can deepen collaboration, leverage resources and sustain impact, driving SDG delivery within national development planning. It is led by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors (RPA), and supported by the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, Ford Foundation, Oak Foundation, Brach Family Charitable Foundation, and many others. 

Charlie Bresler, Executive Director, The Life You Can Save

      Charlie has helped TLYCS' founder, Peter Singer, to develop the organisation from the ground up. He frequently gives talks about effective giving and the effective altruist movement and also speaks specifically with high net worth groups and individuals about their philanthropy and giving practices.
