• GiveDirectly

    Send money directly to the extreme poor.

Every month, thousands of people receive unconditional cash transfers from GiveDirectly that transform their lives.

HOW THEY DO IT

  • They first locate extremely poor communities using publicly available data. They then send field staff door-to-door to digitally collect data on poverty and enroll recipients. They target households using criteria that vary by region—including aggregating a range of factors or looking at housing materials.
  • They use a set of independent checks to verify that recipients are eligible and did not pay bribes, such as physical back-checks, image verification, and data consistency checks.
  • They transfer recipient households roughly $1,000, or around one year’s budget for a typical household. They use electronic payment systems; typically, recipients receive an SMS alert and then collect cash from a mobile money agent in their village or nearest town.
  • They call each recipient to verify receipt of funds, flag issues, and assess their own customer service.
