Q&A with Caroline Teti, Director of Recipient Advocacy at GiveDirectly

From Amherst Effective Altruism in Partnership with One for the World

Caroline Teti has worked for GiveDirectly (a GiveWell top charity) in different roles, including field director for the Basic Income Project, director of government and external relations and, currently, director of recipient advocacy. She's a Kenyan social scientist with 14 years work experience in the public sector.

She will offer us a uniquely informed perspective on GiveDirectly’s work, the general work of Effective Altruism interventions and the views of recipients of these programs.

Poetry in the Pandemic

In the time of uncertainty and anxiety, poetry brings us hope, inspiration and reflection. Have you been reading or writing poems in the pandemic? Do you want to share the lines you've read or written with the Amherst community? Please fill out the form: https://forms.gle/AqT9ofE76gL9edCp6 or email your response to Haoran Tong '23 at htong23@amherst.edu.

We welcome all students, faculty, staff, alumni and parents of Amherst College to participate! Help us lead a poetic life to overcome the difficult circumstances. We plan to compile all submissions into an anthology titled "Amherst Poetry in the Pandemic."
