To see families thriving and communities transformed.
Connect Network is a collaborative network of NPOs and Churches working together with women and children at risk, to see communities transformed in South Africa.
We believe in a free trade of ideas. We fight against the perils of indifference. We present a ripple of hope. The Cluetrain Manifesto says it well: "Whatever you may have heard, this is our world, our place to be. Whatever you've been told, our flags fly free." One World. Zero Barriers.
We provide non-profit organisations in various vertical markets with state-of-the-art web applications integrated with on-demand donation processing. Our web-based platform enables non-profit organisations to connect with the people that support them, and vice versa - we enable Activists to fundraise for the Causes they believe in. Our platform enables non-profit organisations to run a better operation, increase revenue, build and manage relationships, and win support for the ideas in which they believe. We see a global community of individuals breaking down the barriers between and within us, with personal projects that let us sponsor, follow and discuss each others' chosen causes. We see a world without fear, a world where everyone has enough to eat, the right to choose, the opportunity to speak and be heard. We are different from other commercial service providers in that 100% of all donations made to projects listed on GivenGain are managed within a fully audited and compliant nonprofit environment, made possible through our unique relationship with the GivenGain Foundation. We believe that this is the right thing to do.
