A platform to promote trust and
empower NGOs from anywhere in the world

A platform to promote trust and empower NGOs from anywhere in the world

Converge​​

Connect NGOs, communities and donors with aligned intentions and purposes

Finding and trusting NGOs that share the same purpose and values takes time and effort, making it difficult to develop collaboration between donors, NGOs and local communities. We are creating a pool of trusted NGOs to help to easily find them and connect with them through a portal.

TRUST​​

Help NGOs to earn trust continuously

NGOs spend significant resources to demonstrate their accountability to donors. The process is rational, repetitive but trust does not emerge from completing checklists. We are designing a modular framework and a repository to streamline and centralise all the information that helps NGOs demonstrate trustworthiness towards donors, peers and local communities.

MOBILISE​​

Maximise resource transfer (and sharing mechanisms)

Giving to an NGO using traditional channels is expensive: on average, 15% -20% disappear from your donation in transfer fee and intermediary commission. Financial transfer technologies have significantly evolved in the private sector. We want to share that technology and innovation to ensure the maximum proportion of each donation reaches its ultimate beneficiary.

STRENGTHEN​​

Enhance local impact​

Access to capacity strengthening tools, know-how and resources is expensive for NGOs who need to prioritise their use of funds. We want to give access to tools, methods and ways to share knoledge to increase the means for local NGOs to have more impact to enable local and people action.

How it works today

  • Resources are channelled through several intermediaries;
  • Intermediaries retain double digit % from donations;
  • Donors and NGOs rarely have direct interaction;
  • Donors  strive for direct support of local action.

Why support local NGOs directly?

They have firsthand knowledge of the local context
They are efficient at using available resources
They are committed to serving their community
