The Guardian's Global Development Page: Required Reading

by Ann Marie Gardner

January 5, 2011

The Guardian's page on global development, funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (full disclosure: they also sponsor GOOD's global health coverage) is a good quick read on the latest breaking issue in global development.  One section continuously tracks the ongoing progress of the Millennium Development Goals leading up to 2015 and stories cover everything from cocoa prices in the Ivory Coast affected by the recent election turmoil to podcasts on whether celebrities should be involved in development.

Of their most viewed stories over the last few days, the short film on the dangers facing "house girls" in Africa is haunting and will compel you to grab your checkbook to help keep these girls in school.
