The Affero Project is a grassroots online community that allows you to give small change each month, and vote for where the money goes. Affero, a Latin word meaning “bring about”, “to proclaim”, “to empower, the Affero Project is a non-profit dedicated to inspiring people to help end poverty and injustice around the world, by encouraging donors to give regularly, funding important projects that empower partner organizations and uplifting the communities where work is being done.
Through their commitment to telling the stories of partner organizations and individuals positively impacting the world and sharing their voice, the Affero Project raises awareness to combat poverty and improving human rights, promotes long-term sustainability to the environment and people, and supports education and global learning through integrated curriculum for schools, leading national research projects, Affero Adventure Tours, and more.
Partner organizations are chosen from 12 categories that align with the United Nations Millennium Development Goals, and include: Cure International which transforms lives of children with disabilities and their families through medical and spiritual healing, Blood:Water Mission, which empowers communities to work together to fight HIV/Aids and water crisis, and Freedom from Hunger which brings innovative and sustainable self-help solutions to fight chronic hunger and poverty.
