Temporary cash for permanent change. Getting out of extreme poverty in 100 weeks

A new, revolutionary way of giving, by giving money directly to women who live in extreme poverty. The women know exactly what it is they need to be financially independent within 100 weeks.

Giving money makes people active
Scientific research shows that people start working harder and make better decisions when there is a prospect of improvement. By giving money directly, people that live in poverty are given the opportunity to help themselves.

Giving without conditions
People know best what they need first. Because anyone who does what they do best, will get out of the doldrum faster. Simple.

Giving long enough, but not infinite
100 weeks is a pretty good average to get people 100% on the ride again.
