This is our process
100% of your donation goes directly to the project of your choosing. That’s right—no overhead costs, no hidden costs. Transparency is of the utmost importance to us. Our process of community development includes everyone involved: you, international community members, local governments, and us. Before any project, our team first assesses the location and meets with the community. Once the partnership is in place, we plan with the local government, then start fundraising for the project. After implementation, we follow up by communicating with in-country project managers, as well as project monitoring trips several times each year.
A Better World started in 1990 when two men had an idea—to change the world. With high ambition and a desire to start somewhere, they had $5,000 to start a project.
Today, A Better World has raised over $32 million to support sustainable development in over 15 countries. We work with community leaders in the recipient countries for typically 5 to 10 years. Our goal is to ensure that the community has the necessities to sustain health, education, water supply, basic agriculture, and economic growth. We partner with government, local agencies, and the people living in the community to manage and operate the projects, ensuring they become permanently independent.
