The best Arab network

Nakhweh—Arabic for chivalry—is the first volunteer network for the Arab world. Former web developer Kamel Al-Asmar built the site from scratch; since 2009 it posted some 650 volunteering opportunities with more than 900 social ventures. With today’s youth, NGO’s, social entrepreneurs, social activists and socially conscious companies in mind, they have developed their platform to connect people working in the development sector in the Arab world. Their goal is to enable their network to expand opportunities, exchange ideas, share knowledge and to promote and share the positive culture of civic engagement.

They support NGO’s and initiatives recruit volunteers through their free volunteer matching services as well as the use of social media channels, aiming to encourage youth to be proactive citizens of their community. They also give social entrepreneurs exposure through their channels and networks. Finally, they enable socially responsible companies find funding opportunities for sustainable and impactful initiatives. Being a part of the Nakhweh network gives people access to a comprehensive directory for social work in the Arab world.
More than 21.000 youth volunteers have already signed up.
