let’s move to community-led change

We firmly believe that projects implemented by community-led NGOs have the greatest impact on improving livelihoods and ensuring sustainability.

NGOs operating on the ground possess a profound understanding of the challenges in their community and their environment. They work diligently and solution-oriented to tackle these issues effectively.

However, many community-based NGOs struggle to secure funding for their projects.

We are convinced that private online donations raised through international fundraising platforms have a huge potential but this opportunity is not leveraged effectively enough by many community-led NGOs.

This is primarily due to the lack of financial and human resources, as well as limited awareness of this fundraising option.

Our mission is to accelerate community-led change by empowering NGOs to tap into this valuable source for fundraising.

why community-led NGOs?

Community-led NGOs are driven and led by the very community they serve!

What sets them apart from non-community-led NGOs is their intimate understanding of the community’s needs, which enables them to be more effective and solution-focused. The community places a high level of trust in the NGO and cultivates strong relationships with the NGO team. 

NGOs operating within the community are subject to a higher degree of accountability compared to those originating from outside the community. Their self-determination grants them greater autonomy and reduces their dependence on government or commercial interests.

This local asset not only empowers the community but also facilitates decision-making that aligns with the specific local needs of the community.
