NetHope is a consortium of the world’s leading humanitarian, development and conservation organizations which collaborate across geographies and missions to solve some of the world’s greatest challenges. This week, NetHope welcomed two new members: Food for the Hungry and JSI Research and Training Institute.
“Collectively, NetHope nonprofit Members deliver more than 60% of all annual international, non-governmental aid and serve 1.2 billion+ people in 190 countries. The NetHope community is now even stronger with the recent addition of two committed new members,” said Lance Pierce, NetHope CEO.
“When we welcome new Members like Food for the Hungry and JSI to NetHope, we expand the circle of our global community of leaders who deliver better humanitarian relief, long term development, and ecosystem conservation via accelerated digital transformation,” said NetHope CEO Lance Pierce on the announcement of the newest Members. Both Food for the Hungry and JSI share a common goal with NetHope – to use the power of collaboration to enhance aid, development, and humanitarian efforts on a global scale, utilizing the incredible power of technology.
Food for the Hungry is a Christian humanitarian aid and global development organization that designs, develops and delivers solutions for more than 50 years so that children, families and communities can flourish.
Collaborating with local leaders across sectors, they co-create solutions that build resilience by strengthening mental, physical and spiritual well-being. Food for the Hungry serves nearly 10 million people in 18 countries so that communities have the agency and resources necessary to realize their God-given potential.
JSI is dedicated to improving people’s lives around the world through greater health, education, and socioeconomic equity for individuals and communities, and to providing an environment where people of passion can pursue this cause.
For over 40 years, JSI has led major global health and education programs and helped strengthen healthcare and education systems across the developing world.
“There is still so much more work to be done. That's one of the reasons why JSI is excited to join NetHope and leverage the power of digital and collaboration to drive even greater impact. Connecting with other leading NGOs and tech companies will open up new opportunities for innovation in the humanitarian sector. We'll be able to pilot cutting-edge solutions and apply them to amplify our life-saving work," said JSI CIO, Braulio Oliveira.
“At JSI, we know that no single organization can tackle today's greatest health and education challenges alone. It requires a unified effort. Through NetHope, we can share knowledge and best practices to empower our teams and the communities we serve. We look forward to contributing our decades of global health and education expertise while also learning from fellow members.
Together, we can leverage technology to create lasting change. NetHope's mission aligns perfectly with our own - to leave no one behind. We're excited to help shape the future of technology for good as part of this community."
NetHope, a consortium of over 60 leading global nonprofits, unites with technology companies and funding partners to design, fund, implement, adapt, and scale innovative approaches to solve development, humanitarian, and conservation challenges. Together, the NetHope community strives to transform the world, building a platform of hope for those who receive aid and those who deliver it.
