Yes, we have ANBI registration, as Stichting LittleBitz

This is a very important issue to us. Both your data and the data of the displaced people are of great concern. As the information we share on our application concerns a very vulnerable group of people, we have taken sufficient measures to protect their personal information with regard to the information that we disclose to convey proper adherence to current privacy legislation. In our terms of use and privacy policy we provide more details.

LittleBitz is a social start-up, powered by committed individuals and supported by sponsor organizations and networks from the public and the private sector. We are a non-profit foundation with an ANBI status based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. To ensure systematic innovation for lasting impact, our initiative is designed to make a real difference today while serving as a proven model for tomorrow.

LittleBitz has a clear vision on privacy and data protection. LittleBitz is aware of the (privacy and data protection) risks inherent to its field of work and therefore continuously strives for full GDPR-compliance. The framework of LittleBitz’ activities exposes LittleBitz and its partners to limited privacy and data protection-risks. These are explained in more detail in our Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.

The LittleBitz foundation is funded by social investors and foundations. In addition, we receive pro bono support from our partners on a wide range of topics. We don't take commission or a percentage from the donations.

The UNHCR stands for the office of the United Nations High Commissioner for refugees and is the UN agency with the mandate to protect refufees. For more information please visit www.unhcr.org.

It takes on average two weeks for your donation to reach its destination. For example in Jordan, the money needs to be transferred to a secure bank account, made available to the refugee, who gets a notification to withdraw the money from a nearby ATM with iris-scan recognition.

The LittleBitz application supports iDeal payments, Apple Pay and Creditcard payments.

In the fist phase LittleBitz will connect donors in the Netherlands to displaced people in Jordan and the very poor in Kenya. We want to broaden the scope on both sides in 2021.

Our goal is to create a new way of giving, to support those who need it the most, in a direct and transparent way.

The individuals shown come from trusted and verified databases. The refugees come from a database called RAIS and managed by the UNHCR (The UN Refugee Agency). From this database ca. 9.000 Syrian displaced people in Jordan are connected to the platform. This group consists of families and children, as well as single women, who have been registered by the UNHCR . Out of the main database, the most vulnerable are selected.

You will receive a notification once your donation has been received. On average this takes up to two weeks.

In the first phase you will be able to support Syrian refugees in Jordan and the very poor in Kenya, to help them rebuild their future locally. In the near future we will be adding new groups and countries.

If you leave your email or phonenumber, you will receive a notification when the donation has been transferred. We have a contractual agreement with the UNHCR stating that they will deliver the donation to the person of choice. Finally, we will report on it.

If you have a question that was not answered here, please email your question to info@littlebitz.org and we will respond to you as soon as possible. If we receive multiple questions about a similar topic, we will add that topic to this FAQ so that it is easily accessible to other people.

A vital part of being recognized as a refugee is Refugee Status Determination, or RSD. This is the legal or administrative process by which governments or UNHCR determine whether a person seeking international protection is considered a refugee under international, regional or national law. States have the primary responsibility for determining the status of asylum-seekers, but UNHCR may do so where states are unable or unwilling. In recent years, due to changes in volumes and patterns of forced displacement, the refugee agency has been required to conduct RSD in more countries than before and for a greater number of people.

With LittleBitz you give directly to those in need, so that money immediately ends up where it is most effective. This gives people autonomy to spend smart - on most urgent needs and things that increase long-term independence.

LittleBitz is an initiative of a diverse group of people, from both the public and private sector, who are of the opinion that the dual challenge of the humanitarian crisis and lack digital solutions needs to be adressed. The current board members represent the wide variety of backgrounds and interests.

Yes, with a couple of euros someone can buy food or other things he need. Direct giving with LittleBitz means that your donation is effective. Moreover, as a digital platform we can potentially reach great numbers of donors, further increasing the donations.
