Current Community Impact Projects

Whether you are personally connected to a particular region of the world, or simply committed to sustainable development in one of the 170 countries and territories UNDP serves, impact giving is the most direct way for individuals to support the nuanced needs of global communities, cultures and peoples. Learn about the UNDP initiatives leading the way towards recovery and resiliency.



Rising Djibouti

Djibouti is facing an unprecedented economic crisis due to COVID-19; informal and small businesses representing more than 70% of all jobs are impacted. Your contribution will support UNDP’s effort to assist 200,000 vulnerable persons, 50,000 self-employed and small business owners by providing grants and materials.






Thousands of people have been forced to shut down their small businesses, which were their only source of livelihood, amidst major economic losses due to COVID-19. Help support the resilience of 33 local Palestinian informal businesses and the 2,500 people they depend on.




Protect displaced families

Social distancing is impossible for almost one million displaced people living in the camps in Mogadishu, Somalia. Help us provide locally produced masks, soap and sanitizer to those most at risk.




Bringing school back to children

Thousands of girls and boys living in the rural areas of Morocco cannot afford access to digital remote learning. Help us provide tablets and Internet connectivity to vulnerable students to allow them to complete their education during and after COVID-19.


Together for Tamaraws

Keep conservation heros in their jobs. Rangers protecting the endangered tamaraw buffalos in the Philippines have lost their jobs as a result of COVID-19. Your gift will prevent illegal poaching while ensuring the rangers’ survival.




Empower women in Upper Egypt who are producing masks to fight COVID-19, in partnership with the Egypt Foundation for Integral Development.
