Hundreds of thousands of people in South Africa live in informal settlements which lack reliable addressing. Gateway Health has begun piloting the use of 3 word addresses in KwaNdengezi, a poor informal settlement on the outskirts of Durban. It will help to build a detailed community map, so that residents, businesses and organisations can continue to use 3 word addresses to greatly improve their standard of living.

I really like this idea. Better than zip codes. 

And not just for pizza delivery in Mongolia. 

Pretty good for here in the USA.

Here at my NH location, I am set back off the street and it’s hard to find if you don’t know where it is.

Imagine if the USA adopted this as a national standard.
