Wanted Community

The greatness of a community is measured by the selfless acts of its members”(Coretta Scott King – Author and American Activist).

ALWAYS SOLIDARY
NEVER SOLITARY

Our vision

Our goal is to strengthen social cohesion in order to offer to everyone the opportunity to act locally and build a more inclusive and sustainable society.

 

Our mission

We create, manage and facilitate trusted digital and physical spaces to encourage support citizen initiatives based on mutual aid and social cooperation.

Digital spaces

Facebook Communities 

Wanted Community is a community of mutual aid and social cooperation bringing together nearly 1 million members who interact within 86 local Facebook groups in France and abroad.

1 million

members in 86 Facebook groups (75% active users)

18 million

interactions per year (posts, comments and reactions)

84,000

new members per year (organic growth)

Together, our members carry out daily actions ranging from mutual aid to supporting the most deprived ones (meals, jobs, accommodation, etc.). As an example, Sabrina, a member of Parisian community, distributes each year, with a hundred volunteers, 12,000 meals to the homeless of Paris.

Physical spaces

The Wanted Cafés

Like our Facebook groups, we wanted to move from virtual to real, and to open friendly and collective places, rooted in the city (one in Bordeaux since 2018 and one in Paris by the end of 2020): Wanted Cafés, a new kind of socially responsible cafes-restaurants seeking to strengthen local social ties & cohesion through simple actions: 2% of turnover refunded to local solidarity initiatives, sharing meals and coffees with people in need, etc.

22,000

responsible consumers per year

5,000

meals for people in need

8,000

euros refunded to non-profit organization based on solidarity 

 

Our socially responsible Cafés are dedicated to offering to everyone the opportunity to act for a more inclusive and sustainable society through a simple act of consumption, a donation and/or volunteerism. As an example, Alex who participated in our solidarity dinner allowing volunteers and people in need to cook and share together much more than a meal, a moment of conviviality.

Our Facebook partner

At the end of 2018, the three friends from Bordeaux applied to Facebook’s Community Leadership Program, with 6,000 other applicants, hoping to obtain the most impacting community position in the world. (Audrey Chabal – Forbes – September 26, 2018)

“We will enjoy a residency program, with a first meeting in October in Menlo Park, CA. We will benefit from Facebook technical teams, their network and they will help us on our offline projects… “ Jérémie Ballarin (Audrey Chabal – Forbes – September 26, 2018)
