The A-Team  l  Joining us  l  Akka gives back

At akka Venture, we believe in corporate's social and environmental responsability and that our role goes beyond the sole scope of our missions. 
We believe that if everyone and every organisation was giving even small amounts, many lives could be saved and billions of others could be significantly improved, devastating consequences of global warming can be reduced or avoided. We made and recommend donations to the selected organisations below:

Akka Venture made a donation to UNICEF - Donate now (3mn)

UNICEF (United Nations International CHILDREN's EMERGENCY Fund) was created by the United Nations General Assembly on December 11, 1946, to provide emergency food and healthcare to children in countries that had been devastated by World War II.
Today UNICEF provides long-term humanitarian and developmental assistance to children and mothers in developing countries.
As it plays a first role in the wide-scaled humanitarian crisis happening now in the Horn of Africa, we have decided to support it. 

Akka Venture made a donation to THE WATER PROJECT - http://thewaterproject.org

5,000 children die every day because of a lack of water, the "blue gold". The Water Project is a Christian non-profit organization bringing relief to communities around the world who suffer from a lack of access to clean water and proper sanitation. 
Nearly one billion people lack a source of clean, safe drinking water. Over one-third of the world’s population has no access to sanitation facilities. Every year over 100b$ is spent on bottled water worldwide. United Nations estimates that if given just 1/6 of that money they could cut in half the number of people without access to clean water. Every $10 donated provides 1 person with clean water for 10 years. 

Akka Venture made a donation to BABYLOAN - http://babyloan.org

Babyloan is the first French Website facilitating online micro-lending: on Babyloan, Internet users can choose to lend to micro-entrepreneurs in developing countries starting from €20. Today, the number of people benefiting from microcredit is estimated at 500 millions. It is estimated that 1.5 billion people are in need of microcredit. These micro-entrepreneurs are largely disadvantaged, living in precarious conditions, without salaried employment and have chosen to launch a small business in order to take charge of their lives and better support their families through their dedication and willingness to work.
