CollaborAid is the tool to End Global Poverty. It will be a one stop shop that offers a comprehensive set of services to an engaged community committed toward poverty alleviation.
The spectrum of aid community extends beyond the traditional players in the field. Consider a college students volunteering at an orphanage in Kenya, a church group funding a health clinic in rural Mali, a child in India who drinks clean water from a well for the first time. Everyone is working toward a common goal. However, each group faces barriers that cause inefficiencies and potentially impedes success.Consider a family member that fails to donate to a charity since they can track the impact of their money.Consider a small NGO that has good intentions and tries to help a community, but only ends up reinventing the wheel and inefficiently using their resources.Consider the chief of a village in Mali that has invaluable insight but cannot connect with aid providers in the surrounding area. We engage a wide community of…., international aid workers, donors, local stakeholders…. And share information to elevate the work of all parties involved.Our proprietary/groundbreaking/first to market/innovative technology provides value add/enhances/enables/translates/
