What We Do

NetHope empowers the underserved through projects that provide vital connectivity; build local capacity, provide women access to technology, and that increase digital financial literacy.
NetHope provides relief and resources to the vulnerable. NetHope has responded in a variety of disaster situations, ranging from the Syrian Refugee Crisis,  to the Ebola outbreak to the Nepal Earthquake of 2015 and the devastating Caribbean and Bahamian hurricanes. Response includes connectivity in refugee camps and along migration routes; managed laptops to aid refugee resettlement; and through crisis informatics and data visualization to equip aid agencies in emergency response. Please see our program pages for more detail on our work. 

NetHope invests in its members, and the nonprofit sector. NetHope is a member organization, counting nearly 60 of the world’s leading nonprofits as its community. The NetHope Solutions Center is a rich resource and collaboration center available to our members and the nonprofit sector at large, with webinars, case studies, and articles. NetHope members are invited to participate in our annual Global Summit and regional chapter meetings. Members also have access to collective impact grants.
