Ānima activates the good in all of us through real, positive, impactful projects and experiences that bring together communities across the world.

We firmly believe in the magic of connection. Connection makes people more aware of their impact on others and on the planet.

Mission

We activate the good in people by bringing together communities to create a united tomorrow.

By connecting people, businesses and institutions we create networks of good around the world. Helping generate a more empathetic, equitable, respectful and understanding society.




Vision

All people and the whole planet should benefit from doing good.

We are one.



As of 2021 we have started bringing communities together in The Netherlands and Mexico and have started the ripple effect of good in South Africa, Brazil, Curaçao, Romania and Guatemala.

Our Team

We are a fast-growing team from across the globe and from all different walks of life. Though different, we are a group of people connected by a common goal: the desire to do good.
