We first identify a location of interest then find trusted CBOs in that region that have close community ties to work with us. To pick CBOs to work with, we look at:
- Risk (robustness of list from an anti-fraud perspective)
- Reputation (political / community reputation in terms of trust for the CBO)
- Need of audience (whether the recipients are more / less needy than others we can reach)
- Reliability (how/where it was gathered)
- Quality (data completeness, including poverty related data, and recency)
- Potential for scale (orgs that can help us reach >1500 people)
We are already working with 4 CBOS in different regions: SHOFCO, Access Afya, Ghetto Foundation and Carolina for Kibera that have given us access to 98, 000 individuals from different communities. We are also currently evaluating ~40 CBOs.
