With the goal of becoming the heart of civil society in the Arab World, we’ve began working on the reference index for all Arab-based and Arab-destined Civil Society Organizations (CSO’s) – currently with 3644 entries and counting – it remains a work in constant progress with our references cited by news organizations such as The New York Times, Euronews, RT, The Daily Star, AFP and The Huffington Post.

Click to Help
The roll-out of exciting & innovative ways for organizations, fundraisers, visitors of all ages and for various causes to contribute to the wellness of society continues. We begin with the Middle East’s first traditionally disruptive donor platform: Click-to-Help, home of free donations to worthwhile causes where it costs visitors nothing, except a few seconds of their time.
Show your support with our hashtag #arabhelp.
While arab.org cannot be a substitute to reforming the donor system, we work to add new channels to it. We are proud to provide opportunities where funds which would may not have existed without our platform, go directly to our reputed beneficiaries – and that’s a powerful statement.
How does it work?
Ever since our logo first publically appeared in 2002, it has since been modified with simple lettering and a fresh neutral colour of orange comprising basic elements of symbolism to portray an Arab pattern as an identification of this entity’s origin and cause.
