Director, East Africa
About US:
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 unconditional cash transfers
securely, efficiently, and transparently. Our unorthodox approach – allowing
the poor, and not the donor, to choose where they invest – has prompted debate
in the popular press and among policy makers.
