GuideStar Now in India

December 2, 2010 at 10:28 PM

This news gets to me late: GuideStar launched GuideStar India back in September. The December Alliance Magazine reports the news (PDF), noting the challenge involved:

Unlike the US and the UK, where the starting point for GuideStar was existing official documentation, in India the source is non-profit organizations themselves. This is primarily because India lacks a single source of data on its estimated 3 million NPOs.

GuideStar India itself claims a list of 716 NGOs, so they have a ways to go it seems. (Via the official GuideStar India blog.)
