Hi, I'm Rachel, Programme Director at GlobalGiving UK. GG is an online fundraising platform aimed at non-profits in the developing world. Our mission is to support grassroots development by connecting non-profits with resources to create change.
We are interested in global development from the grassroots level. Since conception in the US 10 years ago, GlobalGiving has raised $50m for grassroots dev projects. Beyond the online fundraising platform, we are creating programmes that support partner in Africa and beyond more holistically through connect non-profits with corporate volunteers and experts to improve capacity for non-profits. We are developing programmes that leverages online technology looking to create online learning options for grassroots non-profits. Collaboration is key to this approach because expertise & knowledge is not found in one small group. By bringing skills, knowledge and learning opportunities together from a variety of place, we hope to provide grassroots non-profits with rich resources & support to develop their organisations. We are just starting out and would to love to collaborate with others in the space and to get sector input on lesson learned and create efficient and impactful programmes.
