How does GiveDirectly help combat extreme poverty?


GiveDirectly is a non-profit organization that is making a significant impact in the fight against extreme poverty. They do this by making direct cash transfers to families in need, primarily in Africa. This direct approach ensures that for every $100 donated, participants receive $83. These funds are typically invested in business and agriculture, better housing, and education for their children. Just $30 a month can lift one person out of extreme poverty. The beauty of GiveDirectly's model is that it has a direct impact on local economies. It empowers individuals to make decisions that best suit their needs, leading to sustainable change. GiveWell, a non-profit evaluator, estimates that GiveDirectly could substantially benefit from more donations. This is where Daffy comes in.
