WHAT IS PANDOO FOUNDATION?
Managed by the founders of ShiftRunner and PANDOO Nation, its mission is to challenge, celebrate and assist a new generation of young people to put their values and evolving world view into action, to actively participate in improving the lives of others.
A non-profit sister organization, PANDOO Foundation drives our ambitious social agenda, reinforcing our commitment to make meaningful and measurable changes in the developing countries where we are vested, beginning in Southeast Asia.
On its own, and with carefully chosen partners, PANDOO Foundation funds and operates development programs in the areas of Education, Health & Sanitation, Sports & Leadership and IT. Kids help in this process through game-play missions.
The ethos and ambition of PANDOO Foundation are re-created in the online virtual world, PANDOO Nation, which introduces social concepts to children in a fun way that engages them. The game empowers successful players to convert game points into real-world contributions. PANDOO Foundation provides a “feedback loop” from the field, including stories, video, pictures and updates about families who have received assistance.
PANDOO Foundation is funded primarily from PANDOO Nation subscription revenue. For every membership dollar spent in PANDOO Nation, 20 cents goes directly to PANDOO Foundation or to PANDOO Foundation field partners.
In that way, our organization is unique: It is kid-sponsored, kid-focused and kid-friendly. With PANDOO Nation and PANDOO Foundation, kids change the world one mission at a time.
