Addressing The Unaddressed is a nonprofit social enterprise founded by Alex Pigot and Tina Roche.
Our purpose is to provide a unique (postal) address to people who live in dwellings of unplanned settlements such as slums, shanties, semi permanent campsites etc. Our work is carried out from our office in Kolkata, India where we are working in close collaboration with the Hope Kolkata Foundation. Our administrative office is located in Dublin, Ireland. Addressing the Unaddressed was set up in response to the Universal Postal Union's (www.upu.int)  “Addressing the world: an address for everyone” initiative.
Our vision is for any person who does not have a unique address, and especially those living in unplanned settlements (such as slums, shanties, rural villages) and who wishes to have an address, may have one.  The technology used will be of the most up to date 21st century technology that is user friendly, efficient and which is future proofed. Our vision is informed by our belief that an address is an essential attribute for any citizen and that having an address is fundamental to citizenship, democracy, social justice and equality.
