Cash and Cari - History - Netflix
GiveDirectly originated as a giving circle started by Paul Niehaus, Michael Faye, Rohit Wanchoo, and Jeremy Shapiro, students at MIT and Harvard, based on their research into philanthropy. In 2012 they formalized their operation into GiveDirectly. GiveDirectly's operations were initially focused on Kenya, before expanding to Uganda in November 2013. In 2016, the organization expanded to include operations in Rwanda. In December 2012, GiveDirectly received a $2.4M Global Impact Award from Google. In June 2014, the founders of GiveDirectly announced plans to create a for-profit technology company, Segovia, aimed at improving the efficiency of cash transfer distributions in the developing world. In August 2015, GiveDirectly received a $25M grant from Good Ventures. In April 2016, GiveDirectly announced a $30M initiative to test universal basic income in order to “try to permanently end extreme poverty across dozens of villages and thousands of people in Kenya by guaranteeing them an ongoing income high enough to meet their basic needs” and, if it works, pave the way for implementation in other regions. The initiative launched in November 2017 and is set to run for 12 years. In 2017, GiveDirectly applied their model for the first time in the U.S., distributing cash-loaded debit cards to residents of Rose City, TX following Hurricane Harvey.
