LWB Wins the Google Impact Challenge!

Thank you to the jury for its confidence in our project, to for this recognition, and to all of you for your support! Libraries Without Borders wins not only a grant of 500,000€ (equivalent to about $560,000) but also mentoring from La Social Factory and from Google itself.


Congratulations to the other winners as well, Ticket for Change, Jaccede, and of course the winner of the popular vote, 1001 Fontaines. And our best wishes for those who did not win but who nevertheless deserved to, in particular our friends at MakeSense who were an enormous help to us in the development of the Ideas Box as well as MyHumanKit and Voxe who both submitted truly excellent projects.

And finally, a big thank you to all for your support; this is an outstanding victory for Libraries Without Borders and the Ideas Box project. The whole team is delighted to share this success with you!
