Summary

There are a lot of matters that need to be tackled as soon as possible to make Slovakia a good country for everyone. That is why we created an internet portal where good people make Slovakia a "great welcoming country": Great Country (Dobra krajina). Thousands of donors can change Slovakia by helping very carefully selected nonprofit projects. With your gift we can mobilize other donors and modernize Slovakia by helping small and medium NGOs carry out their everyday tasks.

Challenge

Small and medium-size NGOs in Slovakia are struggling very hard to achieve their goals and to serve their clients the best way possible. The problem is that they dont always have the financial and human resources to deal with administrative matters and fundraising. The fact that individual giving in Slovakia is not developed enough does not help. People are not active enough to change life and therefore country around them. They also often fear to give to untrustworthy organizations.

Solution

Great Country (dobrakrajina.sk) is an internet portal which mobilize individual donors to support very carefully selected trustworthy projects with a huge impact. By taking care of finding donors and also of administrative issues, Great Country allows NGOs to liberate time for the purpose they are working for and concentrate on their target groups. When these numerous projects of trustworthy NGOs in Slovakia will be all implemented Slovakia will be a different and much better country.

Long-Term Impact

When thousands of people join and give small amounts of money to solve the worst problems of Slovakia (corruption, education of Roma, help to homeless, new families for children in orphanages, help to disabled people...) it will have essential impact for the whole country. If we get enough donations to help each NGO with its project, they will all be able to support the people who need them and to make Slovakia a great country.
