A short video on our work in Orissa, India. We've partnered with Citta Foundation, who built and runs a local school and hospital. The facility serves families in the local village who live below the poverty line. We've provided each of these families with a phone. Children receive points for going to school and mothers receive points for attending healthcare classes at the hospital. The families pool their points together and redeem monthly for local food staples, clothing or medicine. Today, there are 49 families / 150 individuals participating in our Orissa project. On average, these individuals survive on $0.34 a day. Through our program, we can increase this by $.06 -- $.15 per day via the value of our redemption options.
