AD Short listed for Award

The work of Andaman Discoveries is not only helping to change lives at a grassroots level, but are also changing approaches to business development. So concluded the judges at the World Challenge 2009 — a global competition aimed at finding projects or small businesses from around the world that have shown enterprise and innovation at a grass roots level — who recently named Andaman Discoveries one of the twelve finalists for this prestigious award.

As a finalist, we will be featured by the British Broadcasting Corp. (BBC). The filming is scheduled for early July, and will include footage from village activities as well as long-term volunteering. The voting period is from September 28 through November 13. Please check future newsletters or contact us for updates on when our segment will air and for voting information.

Thank you to Stanislava Cholakova, on behalf of the SEED Initiative, for the nomination.

The support of SEED has been influential in this recognition. Being a finalist in the World Challenge increases AD’s ability to garner support for our projects and further benefit the communities of the North Andaman Region.
