Communiqué 2013 : Geneva Call recognised in the world’s Top 100 Best NGOs

Geneva Call is hugely honoured to find itself – for the second year running – in The Global Journal’s Top 100 Best non-governmental organisations. “This means so much to the team and our partners in the field, and recognizes Geneva Call’s role in protecting civilians in conflict,” said Elisabeth Decrey Warner, founder and President of the Geneva-based organization.

Up to 68th from 94th, Geneva Call ranks in 2013 alongside many of the world’s top charities, recognised for their qualities and unique work. The list was compiled according to key criteria including impact, innovation and sustainability. (http://theglobaljournal.net)

With the equivalent of 18 full-time staff today, and thanks to the generous support of its donors and friends, Geneva Call is in active engagement with some 60 armed non-State actors operating on conflict areas including Burma/Myanmar, Colombia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Lebanon, Philippines, Senegal, Syria, Sudan and Turkey, with new or expanded activity planned in 2013 in DR Congo, Gaza, Mali, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

This international recognition for Geneva Call is yet again an opportunity to thank donors, supporters and partners; and its dedicated and committed staff and interns for helping the organisation achieve its goal : the protection of civilians in armed conflict.
