Our Current Status
Knowledge for Development without Borders (KFDWB) is an NGO, based in Vienna, Austria, whose mission is to identify current development issues and development best practices on the ground and to make this knowledge available to development organizations and local and national responsible bodies in order to highlight and alleviate the problems at a community level.
Our development aid support project is a way for local communities, volunteers and Aid Workers to make their joint work accessible to a wider audience. The community is made up of volunteers and Aid workers interested in letting the world and our audience knows of the human development situation on the ground, and the best local approaches.
Our over growing volunteers across the globe
In three months of operation we have attracted more than 300 volunteers via our Development Aid Support - KFDWB Volunteer Membership Form (Please visit link on: http://www.knowledgefordevelopmentwithoutborders.org). Anyone can become a volunteer. A volunteer is a person who can let us know of the situation on the ground. We will work directly with you and help solve the problems that you or your community is facing. We do this by interfacing on your behalf with local governments and international aid organizations about your situation and your request for financial and technical support.
Development Aid Support received and case study
In three months of operation we have received about 190 requests for development support via our Development Aid Support - KFDWB Request Tool (visit link on: http://www.knowledgefordevelopmentwithoutborders.org/development-aid-tools/support/index.html). Our organization gives the chance to young academics, Aid development workers, people who are
interested in human development problem as well as people who are interested in working in the development arena to work in the field to help the local communities know and understand which human development challenges they are facing. The Development Aid Support requests we receive are compiled into “Development Case Study” (DCS) - (Please visit link on:
http://www.knowledgefordevelopmentwithoutborders.org/case-study-examples/index.html). The DCS includes, but is not limited to the following: a review of all previous relevant local, national and international reports, knowledge of previous and/or current donor funding and their objectives, the actual situation on the ground with respect to funding, testimonials from local community members, media reports, and photographic and/or video material/clips evidence. Where possible KFDWB are able to provide a basic costed solution for the remediation of the community problem.
Our project on Capacity4dev.eu knowledge sharing platform
Anyone can become a volunteer. Our organisation gives the chance to young academics, Aid development workers, people who are interested in human development problem as well as people who are interested in working in the development arena to work in the field to help the local communities know and understand which human development challenges they are facing.

At the same time our organisation gives the chance to our volunteers worldwide, particularly volunteers who want to start a career in the development arena, and/or want to promote their career in development arena to make their efforts in the field accessible to a wider development audience via our our ongoing Development Aid Support Mechanism Project on Capacity4dev.eu knowledge sharing platform. They can do this by signing in http://capacity4dev.ec.europa.eu/home, joining public groups, uploading photos, videos, papers etc., start discussions or join other public discussions groups to let the group’s members know about their experience with the community on the ground. In addition we ask volunteers to share this website in their social networks in order to help others around the world to identify their development issues and/or development best practices on the ground.
