What is Atb.world?
We believe that social purpose is only real when we act. It can include demonstrating kindness throughout one’s life and helping to protect the planet and environment, working towards educating children, and so on. We cannot say we have a social purpose if we do nothing, despite our beliefs.
With this in mind, we created Atb.world or All the Bios for a Better World – a social purpose platform. It was created to help charities, nonprofits, and other social impact organizations bring a positive change in the world.
You may ask that these organizations were already doing good, so what do we do differently?
The answer is simple. We just wanted to support them by providing them with a social media platform away from the noise and manipulations of those mainstream platforms. Here, they can make connections with a social purpose and link their bios and stories to social purpose causes that they support. It will help them maximize their reach, resources and impact. At Atb.world, we enable people, organisations, and communities to:
- Communicate their purpose and tell their own stories
- Learn about and connect with others
- Find opportunities to progress their careers, businesses, and communities
Further, we believe that social impact organizations worldwide have a pivotal role in making the world a better place, sooner and sustained. We pledge to support them through the free use of our platform and a share of profits we aim to generate.

What Makes Atb.world Different from Other Social Sites?
Many nonprofits and social enterprises reach out to their supporters using popular social networks like Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram. But the problem with these platforms is that they are very wide. Billions of people use these platforms monthly. It becomes difficult to connect with those who share the same social cause.
So, at Atb.world, we provide a platform where people and organizations that share the same cause can connect to build stronger communities and a better world. Here, you can have two-way conversations with your community and get to know them better. It won’t convince people to donate to your cause instantly. But it will help build a strong relationship that may result in donations down the line.
How Can You Use Atb.world to Your Advantage?
Charities, nonprofits, and organizations can use this social purpose platform to to increase their reach, resources, and impact. They can share bios and stories of their employees, volunteers, beneficiaries and supporters.
You can use the platform to help people see for themselves the difference your charity or organization is making in society. It will build trust among the people, attracting more people towards your cause. If you support a cause but don’t have your own success story, you can share their achievements. It will let them know that people value what they do and encourage others to do their bit for society. You can help your cause reach more people by using hashtags. It will increase awareness about your cause, the charities that you support or promote your campaign.
Atb.world is an excellent platform to keep your supporters engaged and update them regularly on your cause. You will be providing them with valuable information like facts, figures, and blog posts that will educate them. It will help your organization attract new followers, increase volunteers, and help people understand how your organization works, which problems they solve, etc.
Our Purpose at Atb.world
Our main purpose as a network and as a platform is to enable people, businesses, and charities to share their world of good to inspire others to care and give. Simple but, we believe, extremely powerful. You can do this through first- and third-person storytelling about the people engaged in giving and their beneficiaries. Through Atb.world, beneficiaries themselves can become givers by sharing their own stories that will help inspire others to care and give.
We believe PURPOSE is defined by:
- Giving: includes making donations or volunteering.
- Helping: It is about giving help to someone directly.
- Supporting: It involves promoting people and organizations with recommendations, endorsements, tributes, etc.
- Investing: It is spending money with expected direct return or consumption, i.e., money to support a venture for a share of profits or money spent to buy goods and services for yourself or your family and friends.
To fulfill our purpose, we constantly strive to give, help, support, and invest in people and organizations who need it.

We encourage you to pay your tributes when they are alive and well. This way, your tribute may actually be communicated to them, bringing them joy, satisfaction, or even inspiration. You can add tributes for Individuals as well as for Organisations and Collections
You can start discussions on any Organisation profile and any public Collection profile.

Just like events, all profiles can create this profile where interested helpers can request for help and offer help. Click here to browse help wanted section.
