Website Launch and Sign Up
The Tadamon platform is finally operational, with campaigns and dedicated profile pages for civil society organizations. The aim of the platform includes mobilizing resources through innovative financing, knowledge sharing, experience, best practices and lessons learned among CSOs, and establishing a roster of CSOs from member countries. Behind the new design, we have built a customizable infrastructure to host and present our community. The new platform enables CSOs to sign up and create their own profile pages, host campaigns and showcase their activities and achievements for both partners and donors. It enables the donors and philanthropists to support innovative and transformative ideas and projects that make a difference to the lives of millions of people affected by conflict, fragility, poverty, and natural disaster. These new features make it easy to search and spot organizations based on different categories from SDG focus, geographical location, the field of activities to organization size.
Some of the key features are:
