Introduction


Creating Ecosystems

of

Social Change

 

The Kariega Project is a non-profit organisation that administers an innovative virtual currency to help organisations and individuals drive more impactful and sustainable social change in underprivileged communities.

 

Join the Movement

Our journey started with a two simple ideas. First, all communities, even the poorest ones, are resource rich. They may not have great financial wealth, but they have other valuable resources like people, passion, talent and willpower. Second, there are champions in every community, with great ideas, working hard to improve the lives of those around them. So we set out to create an ecosystem in which communities and their champions could leverage these resources for the money or services needed to achieve their goals. 

To do that, we created Kulu Coin

 
 

KULU COIN is a virtual currency that underprivileged groups and communities earn by completing community service and then use to “purchase” funding or social services for key economic, social, and environmental development projects. 

 

KULU COIN is earned by recipient groups by completing community service and sponsored by participating organisations or individuals looking to drive social change.

VIRTUAL CURRENCY.   WITH MORE IMPACT.   SET AT MARKET RATES.  

SPONSORED

Kulu Coins are sponsored by willing companies or individuals looking to invest in social change. Sponsors can either sponsor money to cover each Kulu Coin earned, or they can commit to providing 1 volunteer hour for that same Kulu Coin.  

EARNED

Kulu Coins are earned by civil society groups by first undertaking a set amount of community service. One community service hour (per person) earns 1 Kulu Coin. A Kulu Coin is valued at local market rates to ensure that it doesn't create dependency. 

SPENT

Kulu Coin can only be spent on social, economic, or environmental community projects or services. Participating civil society groups have the option to not only cash them in for project financing, but also to “purchase” volunteer services.

Looking for a better way to invest in your community?

 

Kulu Coin is innovative because it is unique, sustainable, and measurable to almost any locale. But most important, it maximises impact. For every Kulu Coin sponsored, our process not only injects money or volunteer services into social development, but it also guarantees additional community service.

For sponsors, Kulu Coin provides an impactful, measurable, and efficient way to invest in communities. For participating civil society groups, Kulu Coin allows them to prioritise their own needs and build collaborative partnerships.

As a mechanism to facilitate community development, we do not know of any other process of its kind anywhere in the world.
