About Us

Cutting out the bureaucracy. Direct and personal sponsorship; fully public, live-updated accounts; an efficient and simple alternative to the aid business.

We are an !rish Common Law Society operating world wide to put sponsors directly in touch with their recipients. Dedicated to openness, honesty and transparency, we act only as an agent for sponsors, ensuring the smooth running, legitimacy and efficiency of their project. Individuals or groups of up to ten people sponsor one project, for example a permaculture project in a drought-stricken area, which is part of a wider ongoing project for that region.

Sponsors have regular video blog updates from their project, as well as an online forum and direct email contact.. They can check accounts in real time via a web interface, even tracking their own money. The system is under development with a pilot projects in Kenya and Namibia.
