"ConnectAID is needed now more than ever to ensure limited support gets to where the need is greatest. Solving the world’s challenges has never been about supply shortages – whether that supply is food, resources or medicine. It is always about coordination and matching supply with demand in a timely manner."

"I still believe that the world is a generous place and it is possible to live life 'on purpose"; but too often we get wrapped up in our own individual effort and forget that we can do so much more when we are "connected". That is what ConnectAID is all about. As the proverb goes: " If you want to go quickly go alone, if you want to go far, go together..."

“There are many great organizations addressing the climate, environmental, and development challenges. Yet, each of these efforts are often conducted in isolation, and are rarely integrated. The Earth is an integrated system, and we therefore need integrated approaches to solving global problems. ConnectAID facilitates this integration that we so sorely need. It is a a force-multiplier for achieving SDGs.”
