"The GEM Project helps people to help themselves."
GEM is a mobile reward system for social volunteers.
People can earn GEMs by doing community work, separating waste, planting trees etc.
They can then spend these GEMs on airtime, pre-paid electricity, movie tickets and groceries.
They can also spend GEMs with each other because opening a GEM account is quick, easy and free!
The project has been nominated for the highly prestigious international SEED Awards (www.seedinit.org) for innovative social venture projects.
“GEM rewards people that volunteer their time and effort toward social projects.”
Everybody has skills and talents that can contribute to the development of our communities and country.
That is why GEMs are offered to people who are socially active in their communities.
With the help of corporate partners, GEM activates locally available resources that contribute to local development.
“GEM is a mobile reward system backed by corporate partners. It offers rewards to citizens that are active in their communities.”
When you contribute to social projects, you earn GEMs.
One GEM is equivalent to one South African Rand.
