Although EcoReach is a small, grassroots non-profit in Nepal, GivingWay has provided it with free resources and exposure that have effectively levelled the playing field. This has allowed EcoReach to raise awareness and reach skilled, international volunteers that, up until recently, could only be reached by international non-profits with significant funding.
They love GivingWay, because unlike the placement agencies who charge big money only for an administration process, GivingWay helps them to connect with a wonderful organization in a different part of the world for free.”
GivingWay has provided us with wonderful volunteers from around the world.
Some of these volunteers have gone on to become advisors to EcoReach, helping us to become more efficient. The platform also lets us choose the right volunteers for our program by allowing us to view their (public) profile & activities on the platform. As a result, we’ve always had very good experiences with volunteers who applied via GivingWay.
Since joining GivingWay in March 2017, EcoReach has hosted many skilled, serious volunteers onsite, and has received additional help from remote volunteers.
EcoReach’s online visibility and awareness have also grown, providing this local, grassroots organization with resources that were previously inaccessible.
