For this reason, we’re very happy to announce today that we have signed an alliance with eTail, one of the most important events in the e-commerce world, which takes place this week in London.

iWith.org becomes Worldcoo’s new partner!

iWith.org is a nonprofit organization with the mission of helping NGOs in the Internet use. As well, its expert’s network is able to create and manage all Internet services from professional websites. In an everyday more digital World, be present in Internet is a must for everybody, but more for that organizations who ask for money to make possible cooperation projects. Communication must be the principal tool for these organizations to reach their target, and now it’s impossible to think about communication without having in mind the Internet and the new digital ways of being in touch.

Also, for a cowdfunding project, Internet is the main communication channel so it’s important to know how you can use it. As well, a social community is needed, and to build it, the good use of the Internet tools is a must. Communication objectives have to be identified, actions should be planned, and everything has to be carried out through the web and the social networks. This is why Worldcoo started to work in synergy with iWith.org Foundation.

iWhit.org offers advisory scholarships as a prelude to the development of a good Internet presence. Between the conditions for the granting of these scholarships, the projects submitted in Worldcoo are positively considered.

Internet is Worldcoo’s way of life, and it’s becoming to be also NGO’s way, therefore this synergy with iWith.org gives Worldcoo a huge value.

Worldcoo has a new partner!

The Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya • BarcelonaTech (UPC) is a public institution dedicated to higher education and research, specialised in the fields of engineering, architecture and science. Since this week, it has become our second partner.

The activity that goes on at the UPC campuses and schools has made the University a benchmark institution. The University harnesses the potential of basic and applied research, and transfers technology and knowledge to society. These actions make the UPC -in partnership with the productive fabric- an agent and driver of economic and social change. In a highly creative context, the UPC’s research, teaching and management projects are based on principles that Worldcoo also subscribe: freedom, justice, democracy, solidarity, cooperation, sustainability, efficiency, transparency and social responsibility.

The UPC is present in over 130 countries in five continents thanks to the agreements and alliances with universities and institutions all over the world. This international profile is also made evident by the participation of its members in development cooperation projects and initiatives. The Centre of Cooperation for Development (CCD) is a section of the UPC, created with the aim to encourage the implication of the university in cooperation for development, and to support initiatives within this field among the UPC community members.

The relation between the UPC and Worldcoo will propitiate mutual support, thus trust and credibility because UPC is a benchmark institution in Technology. This collaboration also will involve The Centre of Cooperation for Development (CCD) which will provide help by advising Worldcoo when selecting projects and NGOs to support.

With this, Worldcoo wants so ensure that all projects listed, meet the technical, ethical and transparency requirements of excellence that users expect from us.
To conclude, we would like to appreciate the UPC for joining our team, it is an honour.
