We need more stories from Africans speaking about Africa. As the one-sides stories from European media and NGOs do harm. It harms how we look at the continent (as Europeans and as Africans), the way we collaborate and the way we solve socio-economic problems.
In addition, there is growing evidence that local solutions are more effective, more cost-effective, and more sustainable. Directly supporting local solutions means creating more impact for the people concerned: donations can be used immediately, reach more people and improve more lives.

More about iMPACT direct
We connect a large group of donors to underfunded locally-led NGOs and facilitate direct donations to these professional non-profits. That means: more impact for less money.
How we do that? Experts in Ghana and Kenya carefully select local NGOs with impactful projects. Donations are unconditional, as we believe that local organisations make better local solutions AND realise impact for less budget. And finally, the NGOs report on their progress and results directly on our website for you to read.

More about International Peace Initiatives
International Peace Initiatives (IPI) creates spaces where orphans can find who they are and thrive. Our homes provide a place where vulnerable children find love, care, shelter, food, education and a roof over their heads so that they can break the cycle of poverty in their lives and that of their families. Besides, IPI works with women living with HIV/AIDS, survivors of violence and communities with the tools and resources to move to stability and self-reliance.
