Global Journal Names Landesa Among Top 100 NGOs

January 23, 2012 — Landesa was selected as one of the 100 best NGOs in the world, ranked by the Global Journal. Landesa is honored to be ranked #34 among a list of organizations that are making a transformative difference in the world, including several others from the “corridor of compassion” in the Pacific Northwest – including PATH (#6), and Mercy Corps (#11).

We are honored that the cornerstone component of land rights has been selected for this inaugural ranking. More than a billion of world’s poorest rely on land as their key asset, yet the majority have no legal claim to the land they farm. Securing land rights makes investments from NGOs doing valuable work across the sector more impactful and sustainable for generations to come. | View the full list
