Today, we live in a world crippled by inequalities. Poverty, hunger, climate change, access to health and education, among other challenges are global concerns affecting us all.
The coronavirus crisis will push more than a quarter of a billion people into starvation unless swift action is taken to provide food and humanitarian relief to the most vulnerable. With already over 1 in 10 people worldwide living below the poverty line, the United Nations has warned 500 million more could fall into poverty as a result of the coronavirus outbreak.
ConnectAID is the first combined philanthropic and SDG social impact network that allows direct support and contributions to international nonprofits. It allows nonprofits, corporates and individuals to get involved and contribute to sustainable development projects, and to become the change during the health and economic crisis.
The International Solidarity Network is on a mission. We want to be a part of the change and to encourage solidarity differently.
Our goal is to connect you to international aid, for greater social, humanitarian and environmental impact.
We offer a new approach of international solidarity: the belief that together we can tackle sustainable development and the disastrous consequences of COVID-19.
An advanced technology serving common good
Nonprofits now have access to the support and tools they need to be more impactful, including to a new communication network allowing them to inform their audience in real time about realities on the ground.
Your window to the humanitarian world
ConnectAID allows you to create your personal profile and invite your connections to join. Your newsfeed informs you of current humanitarian and environmental issues, while keeping you up to date with on-going projects.
A connected solidarity
We can help you make direct donations to support on-going development projects. All nonprofit partners have carefully been selected. You can chose to contribute to some actions on the ground, and the network will allow you to witness the real impact of your generosity.
Join the community of change makers
ConnectAID is built on the idea of community and networking as a way to bridge the gap between humanitarian needs in the field and individuals who want to help. We also offer, through our Volunteer, Sponsorship, Solidarity Trips and Ambassador Programs, the chance for anyone to become a global change maker.
Nonprofits who join forces with ConnectAID can reach a global audience on a viral platform which takes absolutly no commission on the direct contributions. ConnectAID offers to support nonprofits with their communication, for example to coordinate their information flow from the field and tell their story in a clear and compelling way. Many other services will be offered as the platform evolves, all meant to allow nonprofits to concentrate on their core mission.
ConnectAID offers international nonprofits various optional services to help them focus completely on their activities on the ground. Whether the aim of nonprofits who join ConnectAID is to raise more funds, reach potential corporate sponsors or minimize their need for their communication investment, our priority and principal beneficiaries remain the local communities directly impacted by humanitarian crises and development issues.
Any international nonprofit organization or Foundation whose on-going project(s) contribute to at least one of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, and that fulfil all legal requirements, can request a partnership. All nonprofit partners must meet our selection criteria and be able to provide tax deduction forms to their donors (at least in one EU or North American country). Considering the current situation, priority for the next round of application may be given to actions related to the coronoavirus crisis and climate change. Do not hesitate to register!

ConnectAID, which is now in its Beta phase, is growing completely organically by word of mouth. This only inspires us to keep going, knowing we are actively contributing to changes within the global community.
