For us, pro bono is an instrument to get professionals and leaders involved in voluntary engagement. They use their skills in the service of a good cause – that is, pro bono – without being paid for it. For most NGOs do not have the resources to buy professional services.
In 2012 we, together with the U.S.-based Taproot Foundation, founded the Global Pro Bono Network. This network comprises pro bono intermediaries from all over the world who serve as links and liaisons between nonprofit organizations and skilled professionals. The network currently comprises 48 organizations in 31 countries.
By providing ongoing support to the network and the annual Global Pro Bono Summit, we want to promote the pro bono engagement of leaders worldwide.
