Libraries Without Borders (BSF)

More than 20 million children living in conflict-affected areas are left out of school today while less than 2% of humanitarian aid is directed towards education. It is to tackle this major issue that Libraries Without Borders has developed an innovative solution to reach children living in the most complex environments, in particular in refugee and internally displaced persons camps.

The IDEAS BOX, a revolutionary, portable media center packed in a kit that can be set up in less than 20 minutes, includes a satellite internet connection, tablets, and books in paper and electronic format, bringing culture and education tools faster and closer to those in need. In Burundi, the IDEAS BOX has already contributed dramatically to the improvement of the well-being of Congolese refugees by:

  • providing children with a safe space to play and learn, reinforcing the existent (but insufficient) education materials in the refugee camps,
  • reinforcing community bonds by providing the perfect place and tools for community groups to meet and discuss about relevant issues including early childhood development and health.

Philanthropy Advisors is supporting Libraries Without Borders with the strategic development of the IDEAS BOX.

Philippines

UBS Optimus Foundation

In November 2013, a Typhoon of unprecedented scale hit the Philippines, causing thousands of deaths and leaving millions of people in desperate need of basic necessities, like food, water, and shelter (including 4.4 million children). Mandated by the UBS Optimus Foundation, Philanthropy Advisors’ emergency team arrived on the ground in 72 hours, to assess the humanitarian needs and evaluate the operational responses proposed by different NGOs.

Thanks to this local presence and timely analysis, the Foundation launched an appeal for, and matched, donations from UBS Bank’s employees and customers. The UBS Optimus Foundation was thus able to substantially contribute to impactful projects, on the basis of Philanthropy Advisors’ recommendations.
