Who benefits from Social Income?

Social Income is meant to contribute its fair share to the first goal in the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development: ending poverty “in all its forms, everywhere.”

Socal Income won’t end structural inequality once and for all. But it will build a foundation for real change, helping people who live in poverty and giving everyone a chance to contribute to a fairer, more sustainable future.

The project’s approach to redistribution will take the enormous income gap between global north and south as a starting point. By deliberately asking for a modest minimum contribution of 1%, we hope to make it possible for people from all walks of life to donate. This could evolve over time, too, depending on how willing the public is to address inequality in this way.

Social Income shouldn’t be seen as a substitute for solutions like policy, law, education, and healthcare, but a complement to them.
Ideally, Social Income would reach people in need across the entire world. However, you have to start somewhere, so for now we’ve focused on Sierra Leone, one of the poorest countries on earth.

Why Sierra Leone?
