NABUUR leverages the internet to enable people around the world to connect and collaborate.
Online volunteers (Neighbours) are matched to and linked with Local Communities (Villages) in developing countries through www.nabuur.com. The people living in the Villages formulate projects to address local issues. Together, the people and the Neighbours find solutions.
For Neighbours, the focus is not on donating money, but on sharing knowledge, ideas and contacts. This novel approach leaves the initiative in the hands of the Villages. NABUUR combines the best of the old (neighbourly help) with the best of now (the internet).
Though the method is unique, the results seem familiar: Dairy cooperatives are formed. Internet cafés opened.Children are educated. Health clinics are built. Crops are irrigated. Websites are launched. Income is generated.
The difference is that the work is done by a dedicated network of online volunteers. That opens up new perspectives for additional effects. The NABUUR organization only hosts and facilitates the process. This innovative approach reduces the costs and time required to achieve results. Especially when the numbers of Villages rise, the cost per project will fall.
