The directory serves several purposes. It aggregates and pools all of these NGO's on a single platform, making it straightforward for donors and funders to find them, as well as the audiences these organisations serve.

Additionally, youth-led and youth-serving organizations do not leverage lessons learnt by other similar organizations, as information-sharing opportunities are limited. This puts similar organisations within an email or phonecall of each other and enables them to find one another and learn from each other. This aligns with Pakati's goals of helping young people network and reach a critical mass in their respective areas.
