Our Plan

How we plan to help

Every year, millions of people find ways to transition out of poverty, but due to economic hardship—they are unable to succeed. 

Therefore, TAF plan is to target the worlds poorest families or individuals. As such, in developing countries, TAF will focus on improving people’s health and wellbeing, helping families or individuals (in Sub-Saharan Africa specifically) lift themselves out of hunger and extreme poverty.

Our Advantage

What makes how we help different

TAF distinguished advantage is: Giving to individuals rather than organizations. In the 20th century, when charity evolved into philanthropy, one of the casualties was that grants shifted away from individuals and towards groups.

This meant that instead of helping poor people, philanthropy fought the “root causes” of poverty, which meant they funded wealthy sociologists studying poor people. For instance: In medical research, this meant shifting away from helping sick people pay for their bills towards medical research that helped everyone.

While funding of medical research is, in my view, one of the strengths of philanthropy, many foundations have done a bad job in helping individual people with their giant medical bills.

Fortunately, the rise of GoFundMe, YouCaring, and similar online platforms has filled the gap. GoFundMe says it has raised $5 billion for medical bills since 2009, and YouCaring says it has raised $900 million
