We are a universal community of dreamers, partners, supporters, donors, and volunteers who share a common vision of a world where no one lives in poverty, fear, or oppression, and all can exercise their rights to a decent standard of living, can have access to the opportunities and choices essential to a long, healthy, and creative life, and can be treated with dignity and respect.
We are believers in the concept that eliminating extreme poverty is possible with new ideas and technology, and we act on that belief every day.
We are innovators who believe that we can end water&food crisis and extreme poverty with transformative and innovative approaches
We are IDEA Universal
100.000 Africans who used to collect water from dirty resources can now just turn on a tap and get as much clean water as they wish. We wouldn’t be able to do this without your support. Thank you.
We help people living in extreme poverty achieve major improvements in their lives that last and spread without ongoing support from IDEA Universal.
Our role is to ensure that people living in extreme poverty are able to meet their basic needs, achieve their rights and manage their own development. We do so by working with communities and by using our shared experience and knowledge to address the root causes of extreme poverty. To achieve this mission, we engage in long-term sustainable development work.
we have a dream
Our dream is to create a world where every person has the ability to make meaningful choices to improve their life in a sustainable way in peace with nature.
we’re an open book
We know it's important to you that your donation is being used effectively. It's important to us, too. That's why we work hard for accountability and transparency. We track every dollar you raise, and show the projects you helped fund with photos and GPS
we don't go there,
we live there.
We want our communities to know that we are not just passing through, but are walking alongside them as partners and as friends. That’s why we base all of our work on actual relationship and continued long-term investment. That's why we live together with them.
we are locally-led
A bunch of Westerners with good ideas can’t end extreme poverty — only gifted, equipped and envisioned local leaders can. We identify and train local leaders to design and implement solutions to their community’s needs
