Malta-based NGO ranks among world’s top 100 NGOs

Malta securesa place on the map of top organisations operating within the non-profit world.

Malta-based organisation - DiploFoundation - has been selected as one of the world's top 100 NGOs in rankings that include the Wikimedia Foundation, Médecins Sans Frontières, and Amnesty International.

Through this ranking and DiploFoundation's work, Malta has secured a place on the map of top organisations operating within the non-profit world.

The ranking was carried out by Global Journal, a journal dedicated to global issues and players making changes in today's international world. Global Journal's selection was based on criteria such as impact, innovation, and sustainability.

The Top 100 NGO award is an acknowledgment of DiploFoundation's ongoing work in fostering more effective and inclusive diplomacy. DiploFoundation's role has been particularly important in assisting countries to participate in global Internet governance negotiations, and in introducing e-tools for diplomatic services. DiploFoundation delivers certificate and University of Malta accredited courses in bilateral diplomacy, multilateral diplomacy, humanitarian diplomacy, health diplomacy, and other disciplines of relevance for global affairs. Diplo also offers a Master/Postgraduate Diploma in Contemporary Diplomacy in conjunction with the University of Malta and has a corpus alumni consisting of more than 2500 officials and academics from 189 UN member states.

DiploFoundation emerged from a project to introduce information and communication technology (ICT) tools to the practice of diplomacy, initiated in 1992 at the Mediterranean Academy of Diplomatic Studies in Malta. In November 2002, DiploFoundation was established as an independent non-profit foundation by the governments of Malta and Switzerland. Apart from the head office in Msida, DiploFoundation has offices in Geneva, Switzerland, and Belgrade, Geneva.
