GlobalGiving connects you with grassroots charity projects around the world. We ensure that 80-85% of your donation gets to local project leaders within 60 days. It's a direct connection.
The International Youth Volunteerism Summit (IYVS) develops the capacity of young people to create and participate in community change initiatives around the world. The projects featured here were developed during the 2007 IYVS Conference and were part of a competition that rewarded those initiatives that generated the most support, in terms of funds raised and number of supporters.
Congratulations to the winning projects!
Creating a Sustainable Water Initiative in Jazmin and HOPE HIV/AIDS: Fighting AIDS in Zimbabwe raised the most dollars (way to go!) and have been offered a permanent spot on GlobalGiving.
In addition, in recognition of the incredible outreach done by Project FOCUS to acquire the most donors, GlobalGiving has invited them join the GlobalGiving community as well.IYVS has nominated a fourth and final winner — A community-run clinic in Sikoro for 28000 people — which will remain a part of the GlobalGiving project community.
Support better global engagement by investing in these innovative youth leaders.
