T’ikapapa, an initiative of CIP’s Partnership Program, has been chosen as one of the finalists among 940 projects in an international contest. Now in its third year, World Challenge 2007 is a global competition that seeks out development projects and businesses that not only make a profit, but also put something back into the community.

The competition, which is organized the UK’s BBC World and Newsweek magazine, in association with Shell, is all about rewarding individuals or groups that truly make a difference through enterprise and innovation at a grass roots level.

The winner of the World Challenge will receive US$20,000 from Shell to benefit their project. One representative from each of the three final projects will be flown to The Hague, The Netherlands to attend the award ceremony in December 2007.

The 12 finalists of World Challenge 2007 have now been chosen. To view a profile of each project go to: http://www.theworldchallenge.co.uk/2007_finalists.php. The finalists will also be featured in Newsweek magazine from October 2007, with a major story to be written on the winner. The winning project will be announced at the awards event to be held at The Hague, The Netherlands on 4 December 2007.
