Crowd sourcing, Rural Community Transformation and Social Audit
CDFI is also assisting the Government of Kerala in the ‘Rebuild Kerala’ programme. ‘Rebuild Kerala’ is an initiative by the Kerala Govt. to aid in the reconstruction, rehabilitation and overall recovery of the State of Kerala after devastating floods that affected many lives and their livelihoods. A Crowdfunding portal for collecting funds and tracking reconstruction projects under Rebuild Kerala initiative was launched by Chief Minister of Kerala on Oct 16, 2018. The portal crowd sources funds for helping people who lost personal assets and for building common community infrastructure. Such crowd sourced funds are being pooled in CM’s Distress Relief Fund but are being earmarked to be used only for person / institution for which it has been given by benefactor. This portal is powered by Sunidhi which has been developed and maintained by Centre for Digital Financial Inclusion and Billion Lives Business Initiative Pvt. Ltd.
