Social Capital Credits (SoCCs) program
Every customer on dharavimarket.com has a chance to contribute to the quality of life of the craftsmen that have created the product. To achieve this, dharavimarket.com is partnering with URBZ and Asia Initiatives in their Social Capital Credits (SoCCs) program. The SoCCs program has already been successfully piloted in Dharavi, resulting in improved sanitation in six lanes. SoCCs is also being tested in pilot sites in India, Ghana and Costa Rica with great success.
Social Capital Credits (SoCCs) is a virtual system of exchange for social good that combines the best practices of carbon credits, MPesa, and eBay. The SoCCs system entails working with individual communities to customize SoCCs menus to their specific needs and capabilities. Craftsmen that register to sell on dharavimarket.com will automatically be registered into the SoCC program. They will have the opportunity to earn SoCCs for waste management, sending daughters to highschool and university and mentoring younger craftsmen. With the SoCCs earned, they will be able to attend skill-enhancement courses, get additional windows, exhaust fans and fire escapes installed in their live/work environment. Volunteer architects working with URBZ will also advise on these improvements.
At the checkout, you will have a chance to participate in this innovative and effective program.
