All donations are used to help women living in developing countries to escape extreme poverty in 100 weeks.
The women decide how to spend the money. Donations are not refundable.
We will provide you with regular updates showing the impact your donation has on the lives of the women you support.
Every year 100WEEKS publishes an annual report accounting for all spending.

The foundation’s main business is international development aid and poverty reduction in developing nations. Its main objectives are:
Improving the situation of people living in extreme poverty in developing nations by providing them with mobile money, a voice, and information.
Carrying out any further action pertaining to or promoting the above in the broadest sense.
The foundation achieves its objectives by
creating an organization that wires donations to selected recipients using mobile-money technology, at the lowest cost possible, both in terms of staff and logistics;
initiating, implementing and maintaining a system of mobile-money transfers ensuring a steady flow of money from the Netherlands to developing nations;
raising funds, exclusively in the Netherlands at first, but in other European fundraising markets as well at a later date;
fundraising in the developing nations where the foundation implements its programs;
extensively studying the costs and benefits of its interventions and sharing this information with the public in a transparent manner;
initiating, implementing and maintaining a low-cost, reliable system of data collection using mobile-phone surveys in rural areas;
sharing relevant information with poor households through SMS, radio and other media;
implementing new communication technology in research methods, data collection and dissemination;
bringing together people, organizations and expertise to develop, study, improve and reflect upon the systems required;
providing the public with spoken and written information;
setting a standard for other organizations and projects that combat poverty, allowing them to benchmark the effectiveness of their own programs.
