GiveDirectly field officers travel to enroll recipients at their homes and give them a phone. Recipients answer questions that are translated on the spot and entered into a smartphone app.
After each cash transfer they receive, we call recipients to hear more about how things are going. This feedback is entered into the database as well.
These recipient updates are published unedited on GDLive for the GiveDirectly community to browse to get a better idea of how their gifts are helping alleviate extreme poverty.
