Why has Global Hand built this website?

Global Hand’s goal is to help connect a disconnected world.

For this reason:

it has built business.un.org to establish, wherever possible, collaborative relationships between businesses and UN organisations. The site gathers a company’s interests in partnering and directs these, across the UN, to find potential matches. Any interested UN personnel can then communicate directly with the company and partner, if desired. it will invite companies, if a UN match is not possible, to place their offer before a wider audience. If a company agrees, Global Hand will then pass it on to a ‘global commons’ of NGOs for whom partnerships might be possible. In short: if a partnership cannot be matched in one constituency, Global Hand’s goal is to pass it on to another.
