Recognizing the significant role of NGOs as influential agents of change on a global scale, The Global Journal has sought to move
beyond outdated clichés and narrow conceptions about what an NGO is and does. From humanitarian relief to the environment,
public health to education, microfinance to intellectual property, NGOs are increasingly at the forefront of developments shaping the
lives of millions of people around the world.
The Global Journal is especially pleased to congratulate the Wikimedia Foundation for achieving first place in the Top 100 for 2012. A
quintessential example of the power of a great idea well executed, Wikimedia’s most famous initiative – Wikipedia – has transformed

rapidly become the largest collection of shared knowledge in human history.

01 Wikimedia Foundation
