At Impact Collective local change makers and professionals come together to make positive impact at people’s lives.

We envision

An inclusive world, where respect and empowerment thrive and where change makers unite to uplift and support one another to contribute to optimal living conditions for all.

Impact Collective  

Is about locally initiated projects, skilled-based collaboration, connecting cultures, engagement. Together we make a positive impact on each other’s lives all across the whole world.


To make personal leadership accessible for everybody, we empower underprivileged communities and women’s groups, nurture individual leadership talents and ignite in them the drive to undertake impactful initiatives for their projects. We do this by engaging in community projects led by local change makers in developing areas, through mentorship, skill development we aim to facilitate their journey towards self-sufficiency and transformational change.

Everybody has something to give and everybody needs something to receive. It is the exchange that brings magic. 

It was in 2016, that Joëlle’s avid off-the-grid traveling started and the immersion in different cultures. With camera at hand, the storytelling started of the unseen people who live their lives, day-by-day. Thanks to her enormous love for people and cultures, Joëlle encounters inspiring individuals, she fondly refers to as ‘local change makers.’ These remarkable individuals are deeply committed to supporting and uplifting their communities, striving tirelessly to enhance their standard of living. Since these local change makers themselves have grown up in these harsh circumstances and may still be living in same situation, they know better than anyone what the core is of the situation. Only, not everybody has all the means, experience or skills to make the impact that is needed to get out of poverty and improve life standards. 

Based on the needs of the locals and the projects, Joëlle enjoys to develop custom made programs to support in the gaps. As a skilled facilitator in collaboration, she excels in connecting individuals, people from different cultures and fostering teamwork. With a strong focus on leadership and empowerment, she is passionate about instigating meaningful change within local communities, women groups and innovative youngsters.

Projects we work on

Local change makers in developing countries are looking for expertise or a different perspective to bring their projects to the next level.
Business professionals like to use their skills more broadly and learn from different environments.

What we stand for is:
– Collaboration: we work together in developing projects with partners to make a positive impact for people where it is needed the most.
– Facilitation: we support NGOs and their local change makers with the skills we have to improve their collaboration and their work. We do that by facilitating strategy sessions, organising teambuilding and operation workshops and optimising communication effectiveness.
– Empowerment: We develop programs for women and youngster to further develop their leadership skills and undertake impactful initiative.
– Connection: we connect local change makers with owners of the means, experience or skills that are needed to support their projects.
