GOLD: Addressing the Unaddressed

About Addressing the Unaddressed

Using GPS technology with software running on a smartphone we generate a 12 alpha numeric code, e.g. 7MJCH93V+6FX9.  This is printed onto a sign which is attached to the individual slum dwelling. This allows the occupier to receive mail at their home.  With an address they now officially exist.  For just £2 we can provide the address and this gives a new life to the 4 occupants – a hand-up, not a hand-out. Later this year we will setup an Exemplar Centre to show anyone from around the world what we have achieved and how they can emulate it.
