Transparent Social Funding
Problems with the Existing System
Tons of money funneled into social projects are wasted every year on ineffective social projects due to inefficiencies in the current system
Lack of transparency has made people lose trust in the system, making funding projects stagnant
Donors have grown apprehensive about donating due to the breakdown of trust in NGO's over the years
Uthando creates trust by showing donors exactly what impact their money makes. It also automatically gives projects more if they achieve their goals & refunds you as a donor if a project defaults on a milestone.
Uthando decentralises the evaluation, monitoring and reporting of impact and gives you automated SMS & E-mail reports when a project you support achieves a milestone. Proof of the milestone is also made available to you as a backer.
Charities and causes listed on the Uthando platform must register and get verified to receive donations. Issues around fraud are mitigated through our KYC process.
Multi Channel Donating
Uthando opens up brand new channels for fundraising. We allow you receive donations via USSD, Embeddable Widgets, Debit/Credit plus a host of features that make the entire process seamless.
Part of Uthando's revenue is redistributed as grants to help social organisations launch high quality projects on the platform. Users vote to decide how these funds are apportioned occasionally.
Donations made & all funds spent pass through our milestone smart contracts with the details of each expenditure recorded on the blockchain. This helps reduce due diligence and reporting costs.
