We wondered when the Olympics opened whether this type of competition might favor the largest countries, but also noted that the largest countries have the largest splits (e.g., India will have to split their country prize 55 ways, whereas if Pakistan wins, their split is 18 ways).
And as we near the finish line, we've seen that the projects that have most actively competed for the prize have come from all over the world:
- Income Generation Skills for Battered Mothers in Brazil
- Helpline for Women in Distress in India
- Help for 100 Banda Aceh Orphans in Indonesia
- Rescuing Girls from Bonded Labor in Nepal ...
And there are more. Now that we're nearing the finish line, if you have favorite projects on GlobalGiving, check them out before 11:59pm October 31st to see whether you can put them over the line.
