About ConnectAID

ConnectAID was founded on a strong network within the international development and humanitarian sector – but it owes much of its success to the support of individuals like yourself who want to contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The commitment of people from many walks-of-life and varied experience is what has made ConnectAID the viral, essential and transformative Platform it is today.

ConnectAID, the International Solidarity Network, is a Swiss NGO based in Geneva. It works as a communication support and humanitarian social impact network dedicated to sustainable development actions, for greater social, humanitarian and environmental impact. Its goal is to connect people to international aid.

Understanding the challenges and complexities of the humanitarian and development aid sector, we support international nonprofit organizations, UN agencies, Foundations and Corporations to communicate about their impact and deliver the best sustainable development results. Here is a summary of what we have done since we started in 2018:
