SOCIAL IMPACT

For us, Social Impact is when there is a significant and sustainable positive change in individuals and communities. So if you're into exploring the world and leaving it a better place than you found it, read on!

Who are they?

WeChangers is a global startup mapping and building the world database of Social Impact Organizations worldwide and connecting them with funding, foundations and changemakers.

They provide tools and data to help social impact organizations and individuals to better tell their stories, and collaborate.

How will they help us?

WeChangers helps us select the Social Impact Organizations that will be part of the YourBestLife program. They will provide us with knowhow, tools and expertise in the social impact world at no cost.
We are able to make sure that the selected organizations have the required track record and are truly committed to creating impact in their communities

SOCIAL IMPACT TIMELINE

CONTRIBUTION

ANNOUNCEMENT

Until Oct ‘19

Until the end of the application period for the 2019–2020 Life-Changing Program, we will be raising contributions and joining forces with inspiring social impact organizations (NGOs, charities and social enterprises) that are already making a big impact through disruptive and sustainable ideas that our world desperately needs.

Together with WeChangers, we are researching and selecting the most inspiring organizations to join forces with.

Oct ‘19 – Feb ‘20

We will continue to tell and share the stories of the inspiring selected organizations so you get inspired and knowledgeable about their work, situation and impact.

Feb – Jul ‘20

During the first program, the seven participants are going to spend some time feeling what the organizations do, their structure, operations and needs, becoming part of their team temporarily but more importantly experiencing and telling their story to the World.

During the program, our team of Humanizers will be responsible for getting out the story of these organizations, informing the world at large about their needs and operations and inspiring others to support their mission. So even if you are not travelling the world yourself, you can follow up on their impact and inspiring stories and choose your favorite ones.

After Jul ‘20

YourBestLife will distribute all raised money to the selected Social Impact Organizations. We will take care of the handling fees so that 100% of the contributions go directly to the selected organizations.

We want to ensure the most accurate financial distribution and maximize the impact of your contribution. So together with WeChangers and a jury composed of experienced people in the field and yourself, we will decide how the contributions will be distributed amongst the selected Social Impact Organizations.

WE WILL FOCUS ON THREE MAIN THEMES
