Digital Divide Data was ranked #31 in a list of the Top 500 NGOs in the world in 2014! This puts us in the company of well-respected organizations such as Acumen, Ashoka, Grameen, One Acre Fund, Partners in Health, Tostan and Root Capital. It is the third year that DDD has been included among the Top 100 in these ratings. The Top 500 NGO ranking grew out of The Global Journal Top 100 NGOs rankings, which have been expanded to include 500 NGOs and have moved to Global Geneva, a non-profit platform for the ranking.
Decisions are based on an independent ranking editor, Global Geneva, that investigates to what extent NGOs "challenge normal approaches in policy, the market, and NGO activity." Over 2,000 NGOs were surveyed for a deep and balanced view of the non-profit sector.
We're thrilled to see the work of so many great organizations recognized this way—and humbled to be among them.
