Heal the World

OVERVIEW

Heal the World provides a single platform to the participating Pakistan Non-Profit Organizations (NPOs), working to promote social causes. The website showcases these causes at all times, in a user friendly, easy to navigate way for donors and volunteers. The purpose is twofold – a) to enable donors to make their contributions to these causes via a few simple clicks and b) to allow any interested volunteers to apply swiftly.

NPOs in Pakistan are doing brilliant work and are able to get financial as well as volunteer support. However, the opportunities are vast, and we believe bringing these together on one platform can help a lot. This would allow us to showcase causes, need of funds, need of volunteers all in one space.

The key is to tap into the advantages of technology today and allow those donors and volunteers to contribute - who may have the intent but are not equipped with the right information or means to do so.

 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The key areas of contribution to the community today are Health, Education and Environment. Below you would see Pakistani NPOs organized under the same.

Simply visit any of the categories below to contribute depending on the cause you want to support. Within the categories you may find details on the organization working on it, details of each cause and how all you can help. This may be volunteer work or financial donations. Depending on what you want to contribute with, select the option and with a few simple clicks you can either sign up as a volunteer OR contribute funds to the cause.

Once done, you will be contacted via email to close the loop – either to confirm your donation or to provide follow up details on volunteer work.

Please note all donations or volunteer forms will flow to Afterglow who will then route to the respective NPO, so please allow 10 working days for us to revert back to you.

Our project Khel, established in Machar colony, is a learning and recreational centre for children. The sole focus of Khel was providing a learning space, a play area and a secure environment for children who work at shrimp peeling factories and are found are involved in antisocial activities in their free time. Khel has expanded its domain by including an informal education component to Khel. The education was included as a response to community demands.
