JA Worldwide Is Top Ten NGO/SGO for Fourth Consecutive Year

Geneva-based NGO Advisor—which recently rebranded as thedotgood—has just announced that JA Worldwide remains among the ten most impactful social-good organization in the world. 

Ranking the world’s most impactful NGOs began in 2012, in an effort to showcase the best practices and newest ideas in the nonprofit sector. Last year, recognizing that it was no longer possible to consider all the categories of not-for-profit organizations, NGO Advisor began paying greater tribute to the fast-growing Social Good Sphere by listing the top 200 SGOs (social good organizations). According to editor Jean-Christophe Nothias in 2021, these rankings represented “the Ivy League of the Social Good Sphere in terms of their people-centered governance and holistic innovation and impact.” 

This year, NGO Advisor has rebranded as thedotgood, with a mission is to multiply opportunities for engagement and interaction in the social-good sphere and a vision of a cohesive energy that maximizes collective impact for the world. thedotgood now focuses exclusively on organizations delivering a social profit and connects those who put positive impact and social profit first. 

Highlighting innovation, impact, and governance in the Social Good Sphere, the rankings seek to showcase the diversity and scale of organizations; compare SGOs using criteria that transcend geography and field of activity; stimulate inquiry and debate about the impact, innovation, and sustainability of SGO activity; and present a wide range of exemplary SGO work so that sector-wide trends can be observed year to year and annual rankings adjusted over time.

JA Worldwide is honored to be named to thedotgood 200 global rankings for 2022. “The next generation of innovators, entrepreneurs, and leaders will be essential to solving the complex global issues our world faces,” said JA Worldwide CEO, Asheesh Advani. “JA Worldwide’s recognition on this list of social good organizations is important because it showcases the impact, innovation, and governance of JA’s network of teams operating in over 100 countries, supported by volunteers, teachers, schools, and board members who collaborate across sectors, industries, and borders. We’re delighted to be recognized for this collective contribution to social good and applaud the forward-thinking recharacterization of NGOs to SGOs.”
