Local Development Agencies

Connected Development currently has 11 member organisations in Colombia, India, Madagascar, South Sudan, the Philippines, Palestine, Tanzania, Thailand and Timor-Leste. These local agencies each work closely with the communities they are embedded within to ensure local ownership of development initiatives. Members are invited to apply to join the network following a site visit from within our advisory group. 


We facilitate introductions between philanthropic organisations and local development agencies. If you are a current or potential donor interested in learning more about the work of one or our Members, please feel free to get in touch via the contact us page.

If you are seeking to learn more about donating to local development projects, please also drop us a line and we will connect you to a relevant Advisor within our network to discuss their practical experience in this field with you.
