What are the advantages of using the platform for my NSO/NSA?

This platform has been conceived and tailor made specially for Scouts. There are no costs for the NSOs/NSAs thus allowing 100% of donations go directly to the funded projects. Additionally, the projects will be actively promoted among the WSF’s existing donor base (the World Baden-Powell Fellowship) and NSOs/NSAs will receive assistance in terms of project management, quality assurance and best practices in order to help ensure successful funding of projects.
