S.M.A.R.T Charity

How do we maximize our impact per euro? Efficiency and effectiveness are at the heart of our organization. We believe that charity profits from a business driven approach. Or: we believe in S.M.A.R.T (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, Time bound) charity. At Max Foundation we work with our heart ánd our head in order to maximize our impact: saving as many children’s lives as possible.



We believe in the power of focus. The water and sanitation crisis is the second biggest killer of children under five years old. That’s why we chose WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene) & HEALTH for the poorest communities in one region: South Asia.



We integrate extra HEALTH components in our WASH-method to make our work more effective. Furthermore, we cooperate with local partners and ensure sustainability and operational excellence by continuously monitoring and evaluating our work.



We focus on impact maximization and a change of habits in the long run. We are only satisfied when a maximum of children’s lives are saved with a minimum of resources. Or: when we get MAX value for our money.

Our impact

Safe water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) are essential elements of our approach to fight child mortality. To create the biggest impact, we developed our own MAX-WASH approach over the years: an integrated approach of WASH ánd HEALTH components, like safe motherhood and nutrition.
