What could the impact be if local NGOs had access to more than just the financial capital, but also knowledge capital of global citizens to achieve their social mission?
What if the NGOs were measured by their end-user outcomes and feedback rather than their donor-driven outputs?
FieldWorks was born from the frustrations of having worked in a system that feared losing what it had more than it dreamed of what it could achieve. Support is not given to those who do “the most right” by their beneficiaries; or with a commitment and understanding of how it can contribute to getting one step closer to a mission.
Rather it is given to a small handful of those with the most charismatic leaders and strongest marketing, who overshadow smaller and more effective actors; thereby perpetuating existing power disparities. It is given without knowing what the beneficiaries think, or what the combined historical performance of the NGO has been over the years.
Evrery grant relationship is continuously subjected to the same time (and cost) consuming, stressful application and vetting process. We struggle to efficiently find and trust each other, leading to wasted time, money and missed opportunities for greater impact towards the Sustainable Development Goals.
There are over 10 million alternatives that work each day to make their communities a little bit better and are better placed to see it through.
We are a social enterprise that redefines international and philanthropic giving from an “impulse” purchase to a committed mission-driven partnership.
We exist to serve
We champion trusted local NGOs to connect them to the global knowledge and financial capital of people who believe in locally led social change.
All our resources are used to create an end-user-data driven, trusted eco-system that rewards locally-led NGOs because they do good work by their beneficiaries. We aim to do what is necessary so that trusted NGOs have the opportunities to access the global resources they need, so they can achieve, scale and prove their social mission accountably to both their end-users and their donors.
This is the age of decentralised, locally-led, globally-supported change movements that don’t require a bulky intermediary.
This is the age of local.
This is FieldWorks.
