ABOUT THE TOOLKIT

Climate change, social injustice, access to education: now more than ever, the complex challenges and pressing issues our societies are facing globally can only be tackled through unprecedented cooperation. We already live in an interconnected world where technology has become an essential part of everyday life and allows for new forms of collaboration. A number of staggering for-profit online communities have already been established. However, many communities aiming for social good are struggling to replicate such successes due to a lack of funds, experience and skilled support. Let’s use the power of technology to strengthen online communities, collaborate beyond borders, missions or time zones, and create positive change together.

Virtual Communities for Impact is a practical and adaptable toolkit that empowers community builders to learn from the experience of their peers to unleash the collective power of their communities. On a single platform, it captures best practices, case studies, tools and resources, sourced from over 25+ international organizations that have rich and vast expertise in community building in the impact sector. Most aspects can be applied to both online and offline communities for impact.
