About US:

GiveDirectly is an

unconditional cash transfers to them via mobile phone. GiveDirectly is driving
a re-evaluation of the assumptions 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 the
emerging markets, and the large body of experimental evidence showing that
direct transfers are as or more cost-effective at reducing poverty than more
traditional, top-down approaches. GiveDirectly’s field operations utilize

securely, efficiently, and transparently.
