Leading Site for Social Entrepreneurs

"The UN Cyberschoolbus was among the very first entries I selected for the initial launch of the Changemakers Library in June 1998. I was impressed by its vitality, its dynamic interactive purpose, the attractive design, and the extent of its content and ambition. To judge from what I can see today, your goals remain the same and no doubt are being realized every day...

The Changemakers Library goal at the beginning (and now) was to find the very best Web sites, organizations, and materials that would be useful to those individuals working around the world for social change for the better. Congratulations to all of you!"

Karin Hillhouse, Changemakers.net Librarian
