THE FUTURE OF AID FINANCE IS HERE

THE GLOBAL FINANCIAL SYSTEM WASN'T BUILT TO SERVE THE AID SECTOR. SO WE'RE BUILDING ONE THAT IS. 

OUR SOLUTION

Disberse is a new type of financial institution for the aid industry. We are building a service that will ensure more transparent, efficient & effective flows of aid finance. Built on distributed ledger technology, our platform enables aid organisations to track the international flow of funds through the whole value chain, from original donor to final recipient. Unlike many blockchain companies, we are licensed by the UK Financial Conduct Authority, enabling us to handle funds on behalf of our client without needing to use cryptocurrency. We aim to be the backbone for a range of innovative services, working with partners to create a new ecosystem of aid finance.

TRACK THE FLOW OF FUNDS THROUGHOUT THE CHAIN, FROM DONOR TO BENEFICIARY, VIA INTERMEDIARIES

ENSURE SERVICES & FUNDS REACH BENEFICIARIES, VIA VOUCHER SYSTEMS, MOBILE MONEY, USING ENHANCED IDENTITY PRACTICES

COMPLETE & IMMUTABLE DATA FOR REPORTING, AUDITING & COMPLIANCE TRAILS & ENHANCED IMPACT

THE PROJECT CHAIN

HOW IT WORKS

Earlier in 2017, we implemented our first pilot, distributing & tracking funds from the uk to Swaziland for a girls education project. The funds were distributed from a UK NGO to a Swazi NGO, and onto 4 schools, supporting vulnerable girls left as orphans due to the HIV/Aids epidemic. In addition to tracking the funds from end to end in real time, we also enabled the donor to save 2.5% on their transfer fees. These savings meant they could fund an additional 3 girls to go to school for a year.

ALPHA PILOT SERIES

PARTNERSHIP: CRISIS RESPONSE

We have formed a partnership with the Start Network, made up of 42 aid agencies working across five continents. We are currently piloting with their network, seeing positive results. We are also working with Start to develop the appropriate infrastructure to manage the entire Start Fund, a £50 million humanitarian crisis response fund, to be managed and distributed through Disberse.
