About us

Project Managers Against Poverty (PMAP) aims to assist like-minded project managers who passionately believe in volunteering their unique skills and experience to help reduce poverty in the UK and worldwide. We do this by:

- Promoting volunteering opportunities for project managers. Check our home page or follow us on LinkedIn and Twitter to get the latest updates. Please email us at volunteer@pmap.email if your charity or NGO has any volunteering opportunities for project managers.

- Providing useful contacts, information and resources.

- Presenting a blog of blogs and articles about project and programme management in International Development and the Third Sector. Get involved and write an article for us or just join the discussion by emailing feedback@pmap.email.

Between 2015 and 2019, the PMAP community mentored over 50 project managers involved in development projects around the world through an e-mentoring service run in partnership with Humentum. Project Managers can continue to get support for their career development through a new online platform from PM4NGOs called PMD Pro Plus. Click here to register for free.
