Teams to end poverty



NetAid is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in New York established in 1999 through a partnership between the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and Cisco Systems.

The international community has set a goal of cutting extreme poverty in half by 2015. Poor countries cannot reach this goal alone; significant progress requires a supportive partnership for development between poor and wealthy countries. To help forge this partnership, NetAid's mission is to mobilize people in developed countries to make ending extreme poverty a global priority.

Combining innovative programs with new technologies, and working in partnership with the United Nations and the private sector, NetAid is building a network of everyday people committed to working for a world without extreme poverty.
The NetAid Network of people and organizations is 80,000 strong - and growing.

NetAid works to:

NetAid employs a range of tools and activities to raise awareness and empower everyday people to become committed activists for the world's poorest. Netaid’s current initiatives include:

Educational Programs: NetAid offers educational programs and resources which teach young people about the challenges faced by poor children in developing countries, and how youth activism can help make a difference.

Campaigns: NetAid undertakes online and offline campaigns that spread the word about the fight against extreme poverty and offer an array of opportunities to get involved.

Opportunities to Support Poverty-Fighting Projects: NetAid World Schoolhouse connects people and organizations to projects that are fighting poverty by putting the world's poorest children into school.
