Our Fairness Algorithm

How it works

At Duet, we strive to give all of our refugee families an equal opportunity to receive aid from our generous donors.

To facilitate this, we implemented a fairness-based matching algorithm that takes into account the quantity of donations received by each refugee family, and matches you with a family that has received relatively few donations compared to our other families. Over the long term, this ensures that all of our refugee families will have the opportunity to receive the aid that they need.

When you click the "Help a Family" button anywhere on our website, you can be confident that you are donating items that a refugee family crucially needs in order to rebuild their lives.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at [email protected].

Thank you for helping us do good, better!
