After intensive research studying successful cash aid programmes in Brazil, Phillippines and Kenya, KungFuture decided to launch its own cash aid initiative to poor families living in both poor rural and slum communities

With no interference, people were allowed to make their own choices as to how best to spend the money

The results have been extremely positive



People have to take out loans with huge interest rates


People living on the poverty line are unable to save money


Number of families that have benefited

Micro business's established as a result of cash donations

New homes built with money

With my friends we pooled the money together and started a pig farm. We are making good profits and can now afford to buy more pigs
