Make the world a better place with what3words
NGOs and charities are delivering essential aid to exactly where it’s needed with 3 word addresses.
Easily find any location
Informal settlements without addresses lack access to essential services, and places are hard to find after disasters wipe out roads and landmarks. Now that every 3m x 3m square has a 3 word address, you can find and help those in need in emergencies or natural disasters more efficiently.
Cross team coordination
It’s easy for long strings of GPS coordinates to be confused when sharing across different communication channels. A 3 word address is really simple to share over the phone, in person or on the radio in any of our 35+ languages.
Deliver aid where its needed
From immediate post-disaster assistance to long-term recovery, 3 word addresses can be used in all kinds of humanitarian projects.
It’s easy to use the free what3words app or online map to find a 3 word address for anywhere in the world.
what3words works offline so people can find, save or navigate to a 3 word address anywhere – however isolated.
Qualifying NGOs can integrate our tech for free. It’s quick and simple to roll out on the ground.

“what3words has solved the considerable problem of entering a precise location into a machine by voice. The dramatic rise in voice-activated systems calls for a simple voice geocoder that works across all digital platforms and channels, and can be written down and spoken easily.”
