Cash Transfer

We give unconditional cash transfers to 56 adults and 88 children through mobile money.




How did we determine the height of the basic income?

There is no golden rule for this to start with.
Guy Standing and his team used a rule of thumb to provide 30% of the income of lower income families, calculating an amount for the adults and half of that amount for children. 

According to the data of the World Bank the average purchasing power of lower income families is 1,4$ a day. 30% of this amount is 0,42$. We use the same rule of thumb for a family of 5 with 2 adults and 3 children. We calculate for an adult 0,6$ a day and a child (under 18) 0,3$ a day.

For monthly payments this means (0,6$ * 365 /12) 18,25 $ for adults and 9,13 $ for children.




It's already possible: another perspective


In 2012, $1,655,000, 000 NET development money went to Uganda through governments, NGOs and the UN institutions. And $33,900,000 came through private initiatives.
At that moment, the population of Uganda was ca. 36,300,000 people.

So if you just divide the (registered) development money among the population, everybody receives about $46.5 per person per year. Or $223 per family per year.

The Ugandan Government itself sets the poverty line at $244 per family per year. Those two amounts are incredibly close to each other.

Eight is not aid

We stress the importance of giving cash without conditions instead of aid with conditions. Poverty starts with a money problem, with an unequal distribution of money. It doesn’t start with a lack of education, lack of health, lack of enterprises, it starts with a lack of money.

Giving money directly to the poor, will get them empowered to send the children to school, to get access to health care, to start local enterprises, to connect with others and express opinions and interests in collective action.
