Founded in 2011 by Angelo Ngugi Becker, a visual designer by profession, social entrepreneur at heart and a Founding member of Neema International e.V., Vibanda.com is the first East African rental listing platform that was strictly initiated and built on values of transparency and good governance. It is an initiative of Neema International, an NGO based in Bonn, Germany that was founded by 7 young adults, majority of Kenyan origin, living and working in Germany, the US and UK.
Neema International NGO aims to end social inequalities among marginalised people in a society, to promote education in order to unleash the potentials of thousands of African entrepreneurs.
For Neema not to only fully depend on classic donations, Neema’s founding members, each with a different and remarkable professional background, decided to come up with initiatives like Vibanda.com to offer high quality services that will, in return, generate income to be used in future projects. By re-structuring its strategy, Neema International e.V. re-defines an outdated model of economic development and non-governmental/charity work.
Vibanda.com has set up a goal that 100% of the profit generated through this platform will be returning to Neema International e.V. for ground-breaking, long-term social projects. Neema International guarantees transparency in every cent that comes in through this platform and/or through it’s website: www.neema-international.com
