There are a lot of conversations going on about corruption with donor-funded projects/activities in low-income countries. This has led to donor fatigue which implies that individual donations reduce because donors feel powerless about how to ensure their money gets to the direct beneficiaries.
Here’s one way we will help in reducing corruption: Causevest has operators within communities where beneficiaries live to ensure that causes on our platform are valid. We have also set up transparent audit trails to make sure that all income donated is accounted for.
What’s going to be very interesting about Causevest within the next one year is how we will be working with communities to ensure citizens participation in projects we fund.
Let me know your thoughts on this!
