Identify an extreme poverty village in a rural area, using local knowledge and poverty maps.
Call a village meeting to explain our "village choice" model and offer a longterm partnership.
Listen as the community identifies its biggest development challenges and locally appropriate solutions.
Wait for the village's project committee to propose a project, write a budget, and raise the required cash contribution.
Raise additional financing for the project from individuals, schools, companies, and partner NGOs.
Deploy funds immediately, start the project, and share multimedia project updates with donors.
Complete the project (usually within one month after deploying funds) and mark the occasion with a ceremony.
Measure and share impact data with donors to evaluate how the project made a difference.
Monitor the project over time based on community feedback and multimedia updates.
Repeat steps 3 - 9 for 10 years, one project per year, as communities disrupt extreme poverty.
