About US:
GiveDirectly is an
international non-profit organization that currently operating in Kenya and
Uganda that aims to help people living in extreme poverty by making
unconditional cash transfers to them via mobile phone. GiveDirectly is driving
a re-evaluation of the norms underlying international philanthropy with a
provocative model: We deliver donations directly to the extreme poor and let
them decide what to do with them. This approach builds on two converging
trends: the rapid spread of electronic last-mile payments solutions in emerging
markets, and the large body of experimental evidence showing that direct
transfers are as or more cost-effective at reducing poverty than traditional,
top-down approaches.  GiveDirectly’s field operations utilize
state-of-the-art technologies and business processes to deliver transfers securely,
efficiently, and transparently.
