Why Donate?


Global MapAid is largely made up of unpaid volunteers, so you can be sure that your donation will be spent where it is needed most.

We believe all people are equal, so we will spend the money you give us with great care and attention to detail, worthy of both your generosity and the amazing commitment of our unpaid volunteers, who have a say in where and how your money is spent.

Donate as you shop using Give As You Live!

Give As You Live is also a great way to support us without spending any more money than you would normally.

Donate As You Shop!

As well as offering the standard one-off donations or donation via direct debit, Give As You Live also offer a way in which you can donate without spending a penny! When you shop through the Give As You Live portal you will not notice anything out of the ordinary but, for every completed transaction, approximately 2.5% of the total value will go to Global MapAid. All the prices are the same, you will still have access to the same special offers and there are over 4,200 stores signed up including Dominoes, Waitrose, Apple, Nike, Sky TV etc.

I want to be a part of this, what do I do?


Sign Up!

It is free to sign up and will take you approximately 90 seconds. When you sign up please delegate Global MapAid as your chosen charity.



Do as much of your online shopping through the Give As You Live portal as possible. You will not typically see anything different on the store's website, but as long as you have visited them via the portal, they will know you are a Give as you Live Online shopper.


Every time you are looking to buy online please remember to check if the store is on the Give As You Live portal. We understand that you will forget at times and this is completely normal. However, if you can remember to do just 50% of your online shopping this portal we will be able to do incredible things to support the development of sustainable growth in Nepal and Ethiopia.



That is it! Once you check out, Give As You Live will send you an email to tell you how much money you have raised for Global MapAid. All we would ask you to do is share your experience with as many people as possible so that we can change the world one borehole at a time!

Where Your Money Goes


When you donate to Global MapAid, you can be sure that your donation will not be wasted. We use our team of expert volunteers to direct the right resource to the right causes – helping to make global aid at a local level far more efficient. Your donations will allow us to continue building maps which direct aid to where it is needed most!


Recently we’ve built maps to show which areas are hit hardest by COVID-19; which UK cities are suffering the worst youth unemployment rates; and where economic and environmental resources are most needed in Ethiopia and Nepal.


With your donations the maps we create will inspire and support long-term solutions by highlighting gaps in sustainable development opportunities at a local level. This helps to point donors, NGOs and local authorities to those most in need of support.


You can donate via a one-off payment, or become a regular donor via direct debit – it’s entirely up to you. Anything you can give makes a huge difference to helping us and we are very grateful for all of your support.
