Not 1% but 95% to Africa
Globally, on average only 1% of the international development budget goes directly to local NGOs in Africa, Asia or Latin America. So, 99% of all funding will first go to northern iNGOs, before parts of it will reach Africa. This means that solutions for African communities are made behind far-away desks.

We do it differently
At iMPACT direct 95% of all donations will reach frontline African NGOs – and through them the people who most need it – with locally-led solutions.
How? At our website donors find projects of NGOs, that were carefully selected by our local experts, they may decide to directly donate. As we see from our first year’s results, as well as from research that relatively small direct donations are realising impact in just weeks or months, because it is a match funding to the NGOs’ own resources into community interventions they already have established.
4 projects before 31 March
Currently, we showcase 4 projects on our website. Our target? Before 31 March we want to reach the targeted amounts of all projects.
