What NGO leaders say

  • We must continue to encourage each other to be agents of change, and be among the small group of people who make things happen, rather than watch them happen.

    Dr. Wangari Maathai
    Founder, Green Belt Movement
    2004 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate
  • [I am] honored to be part of this community, helping to heal, not to hurt. And, there is nothing so powerful as the human act of giving.

    Yusuf/Cat Stevens
    Founder, Small Kindness
  • The NGO community has a very important role in helping to mobilize the people, in helping vest them with the recognition that they do have the power and the duty to make a difference.

    Daniel Lubetzky
    Founder, PeaceWorks Foundation
    Founder, KIND Snacks
  • After we received the award, we were acknowledged by the government and were inspired to translate the WANGO Code of Ethics into Arabic.

    Dr. Wajeeha Al-Baharna
    Vice President, Bahrain Women Association for Human Development
  • We are headed to a world of teams, teams of teams that are working together in flexible ways. Now a team means that everyone on the team needs to be a player. In a world of very fast change, that means they have to be a changemaker. ... The WANGO membership are the very cutting edge of that revolution.

    Bill Drayton
    Founder, Ashoka
  • We have to be aware that we are still in time to change a culture of imposition and fear, a culture economically based on specula, productive relocation, and war into a culture of dialogue, conciliation, and alliance, a culture of peace.

    Dr. Federico Mayor Zaragoza
    Former Director General, UNESCO
    Founder, FundaciĆ³n Cultura de Paz
