 How dirty money binds the poor:
Between 1970 and 2002, for example, the World Bank and the IMF disbursed $232bn to Indonesia, $94bn to the Philippines, $28bn to Nigeria and $10bn to Congo/Zaire. Compare this with Transparency International's tallies of theft at the highest levels: up to $35bn by Suharto, $10bn by Ferdinand Marcos, $5bn by Sani Abacha and $5bn by Mobutu Sese Seko.

http://www.globalwitness.org/  Global Witness campaigns to achieve real change by challenging established thinking on seemingly intractable global issues. We work to highlight the link between the exploitation of natural resources and human rights abuses, particularly where the resources such as timber, diamonds and oil are used to fund and perpetuate conflict and corruption.

http://www.ashoka.org/home/index.cfm

Ashoka's mission is to develop the profession of social entrepreneurship around the world.

Ashoka invests in people. It is a global organization that searches the world for social entrepreneurs—extraordinary individuals with unprecedented ideas for change in their communities. Ashoka identifies and invests in these social entrepreneurs when no one else will.

It does so through stipends and professional services that allow "Ashoka Fellows" to focus full time on their ideas for leading social change in education and youth development, health care, environment, human rights, access to technology and economic development.
