NetAid "educates, inspires and empowers new generations of young people to fight global poverty throughout their lives. We are creating a movement of informed youth—tomorrow's leaders and voters—who understand the root causes of global poverty and are committed to ending it." [1]

"At the height of the Internet boom in 1999, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and Cisco Systems joined forces to launch NetAid." [2]

Their three main programs include:

  • NetAid Global Citizen Corps: Empowers high school students in the U.S. to educate and rally their peers in efforts to end global poverty.
  • NetAid Global Action Award: Honors high schools students in the U.S. who take outstanding actions to improve the lives of the world's poorest people.
  • NetAid World Schoolhouse: Connects individuals and organizations to local projects that help the world's poorest children go to school and build brighter futures. [3]
