“The 1%CLUB is about power and powerlessness. We live in a world where economic means are very unequally divided. At least you can independently make sure that a part of our means ends up where you think it would be most useful!” - Anna Chojnacka.
“Through the website you can choose yourself which projects you want to support, so you know exactly where your 1% is going. The website combines Web 2.0 elements with the rise of people and organisations who want to contribute to development cooperation, and is therefore really in itself a form of International Cooperation 2.0” – Bart Lacroix.
The 1%CLUB aims to be a frontrunner in the area of International Cooperation 2.0 (PDF).
We are the first generation that has the knowledge and means to collaborate on a global scale. If all of us can write an online encyclopaedia (Wikipedia) together, than surely we should be able to solve poverty together!
