When considering poverty in the developing world, many people feel deep sorrow but conclude that there is nothing we can do.
The scale of poverty is gigantic and we seem toothless to stop it. Such despair is reasonable, but the facts tell a very diverse story.
While poverty is indeed severe and widespread, it is easy to disregard just how many people there are in the developed world, and how powerful our pocket change can become when united together

What is the inspiration behind your business?
Research has shown that spending money on us does not considerably add to our sense of pleasure or wellbeing. A Harvard Business School study suggests that sharing or charity is directly connected with an increased sense of happiness.
The Harvard researchers explain: “Happier people give more and giving makes people happier, such that happiness and giving may work in a positive feedback circle.” Other studies have revealed that people experience happiness when they see money go to charity—even if this money isn’t their own. People feel the most pleasure, however, when they give charity or donate something by themselves.
For people born in a developing country, the probability that their hard work will pay off are greatly weakened. They may not be able to work due to a disease for which they can’t afford the treatment, there may not be any work on hand, they may not have the education compulsory for a job that pays a living earnings – the list goes on. Mere daily survival is comprehensive.
This means that people in developing countries are very often at an unjust difficulty compared to others across the world. Children have no opinion over where they live or whether they receive an education. Struggling families may take their children out of school so they may add more immediately to the family income.
This contributes to a cycle of poverty that traps people who may be extraordinarily smart and hard-working, yet indebted to circumstances over which they have no control.
What is your magic sauce?
Lack of clean water is a major problem in underdeveloped countries. Water-borne diseases are rampant in economically depressed areas because clean running water (typically provided by the municipalities) is simply not available. We provides clean drinking water to impoverished areas, currently in Pakistan,
What is the plan for the next 5 years? What do you want to achieve?
Poverty is treatable Efficient interventions can lower the rate of poverty for the world’s neediest people. Preventing and combating diseases can keep children healthy and in school.
Effective healthcare allows parents to continue supporting their families when they might otherwise have to care for sick children or themselves be disabled by incapacitating illness.
Aid provides those living in extreme poverty with the essential resources essential to attain a better standard of living. Poverty is a problem that is treatable, and donation plays a critical role in combating extreme poverty. According to the United Nations SDGs, noticeably fewer people today are living in intense poverty than just a few decades ago.
What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced so far?
The current crisis has only served to emphasize something that was already obvious – that the future of donation is digital. Even once everything gets settled and life begins to return to normal (whatsoever that looks like), donors will not discard all of the new habits that they have learned during this pandemic.
We are living in an era in which digital technology has revolutionized so many things. People now shop, sell and donate in fundamentally different ways: ways that didn’t exist even a decade ago. We anticipate all of our transactions to be quick and easy – and this extends to our charitable donation. The pandemic has certainly prompted many organizations to provide more time and money into how they use digital platforms.
Along with shifting the provision of major services online or to apps, many charities have been forced to update their fundraising efforts. Without the option of holding in-person fundraising events, they have turned online, utilizing their websites and social media to create, facilitate and share ‘viral content’ that resonates with potential donors and encourages donations.
