Action Connected is the only online platform for charity and social business connecting supporters, implementers and beneficiaries.

Action Connected starts and ends with the beneficiary's role in identifying a need or confirming a need that an external implementer would like to help to resolve through a project posted on our platform.

Our Mission

Action Connected cultivates responsible solutions that build deeper connections with all parties involved in development projects. BENEFICIARIES are empowered through inclusiveness, IMPLEMENTERS are more accountable, and SUPPORTERS can directly measure and assess how their resources affect change in the world.

Our Vision

An inclusive and transparent charity and development ecosystem that responds to real needs and demands is continuously learning, improving and adapting. This is achieved through a three-way accountability loop that is generated within each project: Successful projects will lead to repeated giving and long-term and sustainable relationships between supporters, implementers and communities in which trust is achieved and needs are met in partnership.
