Hands 4 Hope 4 All Humanity
After setting up operations in Mexico over 3 years; spending considerable time in isolated villages; bearing witness to unimaginable suffering, the management of Local Heroes decided to adapt it GeN "X" software in order to accommodate several humanitarian Programs that have begun implementation. The Programs will provide precise accountability to donors and their application hold great promise of a better tomorrow for people living in extreme conditions (in remote regions), anywhere in the world. The Programs have the potential to establish a higher standard for charitable giving and be the catalyst for dramatic changes to human suffering as we know it today.
The UseCard Model, (first of its kind) is a stored value system that offers banks, cellular providers and Microfinance Institutions a processing engine that will provide access to electronic transactions for the 60% of the world population who are unbanked and forced to live in a cash-only society. The software has been designed to seamlessly integrate within existing banking platforms, ATM Networks and with our own proprietary mobile and ATM applications. The Program has the potential to attract millions of individuals who have no choice but to transact using cash, which inherently comes with a host of personal security issues. The UseCard Model enables people of all income levels the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of cashless transactions through a proprietary stored-value card and corresponding mobile wallet account.
Micro-Credit & Extreme Need Funds
As part of this initiative, the Extreme Need Fund will offer one time or short-term financial assistance to qualifying parties who are in need due mostly to circumstances beyond their control. Local Heroes has also established a Micro-Credit Fund that will provide low cost Microloans to entrepreneurial individuals and communities. The fund is increased from each and every Angel Card Transaction and Local Heroes will donate 10% of its revenues to the Micro-Credit and Extreme Need Funds in addition.
It is with sincere optimism that Local Heroes will now engage in the work that could impact the lives of many individuals that live each day without hope and in conditions that most of us cannot imagine. These individuals and families having the same aspirations and dreams as the rest of us. With the collaborative effort of all of our Stakeholders, we are confident that soon the Angel Card Programs will help to bring about sustainable change in the lives of many people; providing a better balance of social & economic justice and a God given right to human dignity.
