Why donate to/
Invest in DwB?

Design without Borders was founded with the conviction that design and designers can contribute to improving the lives of people in low and middle-income countries and areas of crisis.

We are simultaneously building up a self-sustainable design agency and a body for non-profit activities with high social impact.

In order to scale our non-profit activities, launch projects, and create substantial social impact we need your donations and/or funding.

We are on the doorstep of an irreversible environmental, humanitarian and financial crisis.

Covid-19 has magnified preexisting problems and inequalities embedded in our societies, particularly in low & middle-income countries. The basic human needs for the most vulnerable groups of people are not met due to the lack of satisfactory services such as healthcare, food, housing, education, and employment. These social problem areas are what DWB seeks to address.

Design is problem-solving, and we seek to create sustainable change through design. So maybe it’s time to choose to support quick and daring initiatives.

How we ensure accountability of your contribution and
guarantee the projects implemented
will create impact

Since 2001, the organization has worked successfully, to design appropriate solutions and services that serve disadvantaged and crisis-affected populations. We are committed to continuing on this path.

Based on over 20 yrs of experience, we have a sound business and organizational model, and design expertise relevant for the African context, that creates a high probability for self-sustainability, scaling, and social impact.

Monitoring and evaluation of projects are done from the Norwegian office.

Transparency is a must. We have implemented x-ledger (cloud-based finance business system (ERP)) in Norway (2019) and will soon be implemented in Uganda to give us real-time project insights.

We have E&Y as auditors and have outsourced our accounting (PROGRESSUM AS). On top of this, we are a member of The Norwegian Foundation Association and The Norwegian Fundraising Association.
