The Worldwide Connection Project
Basic Income Grants are an interesting idea and I wondered if when a rich WWC area was partnered with a really poor community BIG's could be an effective way to make a difference.
The idea that is being tested in this small Namibian village is simple: All the residents are paid a basic monthly income of 100 Namibia dollars, or about €9 ($13). There are no conditions, and nothing is expected in return. Giving these citizens enough money to feed themselves and send children to school empowers them with a sense of responsibility and many businesses and projects are springing up as a result of this initial stimulus.
