New York, New York (PRWEB) February 05, 2015
Digital Divide Data (DDD), a social enterprise pioneering a model for creating social impact in the business process outsourcing (BPO) industry, was ranked #31 in a list of the Top 500 NGOs in the world in 2014. DDD is an emerging leader in the BPO industry, serving clients from offices in Cambodia, Laos, Kenya and the U.S. At the same time, DDD’s innovative social model enables talented young people from underserved communities to access professional opportunities and earn lasting higher income.
It is the third year that DDD has been included among the Top 100. 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.
“What distinguishes us is a business model that delivers high-quality, competitively priced digital solutions to our clients, while also providing jobs and access to education to the talented youth we employ,” said Jeremy Hockenstein, CEO and Co-Founder of DDD. “We're thrilled to see the work of so many great organizations recognized this way—and humbled to be among them,” he said. Other top NGOs include well-respected organizations such as Acumen, Ashoka, Grameen, One Acre Fund, Partners in Health, Tostan and Root Capital.
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. Global Geneva uses the rankings as a lens to bring into focus the social transformations of the NGO sector, and to magnify the broad and evolving range of values that non-profit work generates. Global Geneva’s overall goal is to engage and encourage thought leaders and remarkable innovators interested in the power of the non-profit concept, whether they come from academia, politics, civil society, or the private sector.
