Who We Are
DATABANTER is a digital food donation initiative with the aim to tackle food insecurity and malnutrition among the most vulnerable in Nigeria and Africa at large where mobile phone users donate food items through their recharged mobile airtime and internet data subscription on databanter. Food remains the basic need of life but Nigeria has been declared a food deficit country where over 50% lives below poverty line. Our initiative of using internet data and/or airtime to provide food for the vulnerable is not farfetched from the fact that airtime is known as digital currency and this can be shared with loved ones, family friends and relatives. Airtime and internet data bundle can also be shared as the airtime shared are converted into food for the identified vulnerable. Our goal is to alleviate hunger among 1 million identified vulnerable across the 6 geo-political zones in Nigeria.
Our Initiative is to fight FOOD INSECURITY among the most marginalised group of people using MOBILE TECHNOLOGY through an act of kindness and generosity. We make donation easier especially food donation where any mobile phone user simply dial a unique number supported on all network (MTN, Glo, Airtel and 9Mobile), purchase and also share airtime supporting their various communities out of hunger crisis. A single Airtime shared is converted into food item which will be distributed to the target audience via our Civil Society Organization CSO and individual partners. The good part of our initiative is that users can share theirAIRTIME BONUS, hence making food donation almost FREE.
Databanter Digital Food Donation Initiative: Our target is to feed one Million Nigerians with the collective efforts of mobile phone users and internet data subscribers.
