About Us

A small global team with wildly ambitious goals.

Our Story

Loop was born out of operational frustrations and an optimism that change can happen. We use technology that is already developed to help drive the participation revolution and reach our wildly ambitious goal of: A global platform that is driving social change and increasing dignity and understanding worldwide, with 10 million hits a year, that is free and 100% self-sustainable.

We are a young charity, registered in 2020, with a global dispersed team. With this virtual team and global focus, the location and registration of Loop could have been anywhere in the world. We decided to register Loop in The Hague, the 'City of Peace and Justice', within the European Union and recognised as meeting global requirements with regards to financial accounting and legal equivalency.
