Quick to implement

Rapid urbanisation is leaving millions of people off the grid’ and difficult to locate. A 3 word address can be discovered in less than 60 seconds, enabling governments to give everyone an address in record time.

Complements existing addressing systems

3  word addresses can be used to help deliver services and emergency aid, as well as for government data collection – always as an enhancement or addition to existing street addressing systems.

Access to essential services

Governments struggle to deliver basic services to people without an address.

Using 3 word addresses allows governments to offer access to essential healthcare and financial services as well as voting, censuses, birth registry and education.
