The purpose of Charity at a Glance is simple: to provide our users with visually legible data about charitable organizations around the world.
In the past few decades, there has been a rapid increase in the presence of non-profits, NGOs, and other charitable organizations around the world, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa. However, the data around these organizations is murky. Even the number of these organizations is an estimate. Charity at a Glance is designed for individuals, organizations, and researchers who seek a clearer image of the presence and activity of charitable organizations in specific areas of the world– particularly sub-Saharan Africa.
