What is Sokhrates?
A humanitarian project, managed by the Sokhrates Foundation (currently being created in Italy) by the already
existing and operating non-profit association.
To support its humanitarian projects, Sokhrates Foundation created the first ethical and supportive web community that unites people with strong humanitarian values, in order to make our planet a better place.
Users who share content in Sokhrates and use the web community, in fact, contribute to the funding of humanitarian, social and environmental projects, as well as technological innovation.
All profits generated by the Sokhrates web community will be invested in funding humanitarian projects and to improve the community itself in order to generate additional funds.
Current social networks and communities on-line maximize the profit for their shareholders, without taking into account the growing ethical vision of their users.
Numerous humanitarian organizations base their fund raising on
donation requests. This often creates a sense of reticence and a lack of trust in privates and companies alike.
Increasing numbers of people feel the urge to actively contribute to the planetary change we are all waiting for.
Sokhrates is totally free for our users.
All they have to do, to help us finance the many projects, is to use the application.
A global virtual platform which aims to:
Bring together those people with a strong propensity to make ethical choices in life and oriented towards a path of change.
Allow users to finance humanitarian projects without actually donating money but by promoting the web community.
Generate income through the green economy advertisement, allocating the revenues to nonprofit Foundations.
People on the internet
People who use communities, social network, exchange platform
People who use this tools on smartphone
for Android and iOS
the Messanger application
After completing the Desktop version, and in view of the fact that 90% of our users access our community through smartphones, we have, during 2018, launched the App for Android complete with Messenger and follow the App for iOS with a beta version of the chat.
The web community Sokhrates will allocate 100% of the profits to humanitarian projects (Foundation Sokhrates or other partners). Every time a user engages in the web community, he will generate SK coins, which in turn can be allocated to his favorite humanitarian projects within Sokhrates' portfolio. As many users share content in Sokhrates, many more projects can be funded to change the world.
It's that simple:
Share Earnings Transform
SK Coins and
the user counter
The more a user uses and promotes the web community the more it accumulates Sokhrates-coins points
(updated in real time with a counter on the user's page)
Each point corresponds to a monetary value that Sokhrates is earning for that user.
The user can then decide which of his favorite projects Sokhrates will allocate this monetary value.
Sokhrates’ Funding Principles
The projects we support must comply with the following principles:
A Human Rights approach: guarantee and promote human rights, specially the best interests of children and gender equity and contribute to society's values and the rights of future generations.
Good practices: the use of methodologies that have generated positive changes in similar communities or contexts addressing the root and not only the symptoms of the problem.
Community Empowerment: community will be engaged in the process as an active agent of change.
Sustainability: how the project will be supported by other projects (initiatives, plans, interventions, public support) to endure over time.
UN’s 17 Sustainable Goals: The project must be in line with at least one of the UN’s 17 Sustainable Goals.
Manage to measure impact. The project should be managed in such way that its impact can be measured
