An American NGO, Give Directly, financed by some of the giants of Silicon Valley,  chose Kenya to set up a unique experiment. Over a 12-year period, a universal revenue would be paid to a highly-disadvantaged population, and the results observed.

Many studies have shown that giving money is more effective in fighting extreme poverty than handing our food or material goods. Avoiding the paternalism of many aid programs, these unconditional handouts have been revolutionizing international aid for several years. Could a basic universal revenue eradicate poverty worldwide? Meet the Kenyans who have been on the receiving end of this operation.
