Net-WorksEmpowering communities, replenishing the ocean.

Our locations

Net-Works operates in rural coastal and lakeside communities where people’s livelihoods are heavily dependent on fishing.  Marine pollution from the nylon nets used by fishers in these areas is a big problem. Added to this, there is often little or no appropriate financial infrastructure, and few if any sustainable community-based business ventures.

Net-Works can make a real difference in these communities, incentivizing net clean up and providing access to finance via community banks.

Net-Works began as a pilot program in 2012 in the Danajon Bank area of the Philippines. Since then it has expanded to other areas of the Philippines and to Cameroon in Central Africa.
