Take a step towards saving infant lives all over the world.
$1 has the power to make a lifelong difference in an infant's life.
Click Life is Smile Turtle Group’s (STG) innovative platform enabling crowdfunding as a service. This is specifically aimed at saving infant lives, facilitating direct funding to hospitals and surgeons performing life-saving surgeries and addressing the growing cases of infant mortality. Our aim is to raise awareness of this cause and provide an API-based solution which banks can offer as a community empowerment vehicle to their end users, through their digital banking apps. This initiative has saved 7 infant lives so far.
SOWING SEEDS OF HOPE
The idea developed from the intention of driving high focus on funding lifesaving surgeries of infants – newborns, neonates or 1-year old children - giving them a chance in life.
The number of lives that can be saved is alarming, with a donation of just $1 per month.
Every year 300,000 infants die in Africa, specifically due to maternity and neonatal complexities or lack of proper neonatal care.
The adoption of Click Life API as a service that large banks can offer to its user base, has the potential to cause a massive life changing event.
DESIGNED WITH THOUGHT
Click Life is an API that allows users to vote for a life-saving surgery.
Every time a user clicks to vote, it authorizes the bank to deduct $1 from the customer’s account and donate it towards the life-saving surgery selected by the user.
The maximum amount that can be donated per day is $1.
The value of the donor goes beyond the size of the donation, making the long-term impact of the mission, immeasurable. Therefore, we have deliberately kept the donation amount small, striving to drive a thought process that will truly make a big impact.
