CONECKT is the motherboard for our international omni-channel network of NGOs, corporates, donors, kind individuals and organizations. We facilitate the sharing of resources, information, valuable contacts and expertise to assist in empowering the most vulnerable and marginalized communities – ex-substance abusers, the aged, people who are differently abled, the neuro-diverse population and many more.
By connecting the ‘dots’ we enable many isolated organisations to CONECKT; to share information and rationalise resources – saving both time and money. We have unique fund-raising initiatives and create employment opportunities for the various organizations as well as for the beneficiaries of their programs and projects. We upcycle goods, which not only assists with the environment, it creates an avenue for the organizations to become more sustainable.
In the words of one of our ‘dots’ “CONECKT is a unique and progressive organization that successfully facilitates collaboration between NGO’s, with the aim of sharing resources and ideas versus working in silos. The impact they have already had on individual lives and various organizations is a testament to the powerful and valuable network of connections they have formed and the passion they have for making a difference.”
During Corona we managed to collaborate with The Angel Network, Ahmed Kathrada Foundation and Jozi Together to create what is now known as Gauteng Together. The Community Action Networks (CANS) are working tirelessly to feed people across Gauteng. This collaboration means that we are in contact with hundreds of community based organizations and individuals doing their best to find ways to use their existing resources to uplift the community. CONECKT believes in working together and we would love to partner with you to assist us in building up these vulnerable beneficiaries.
