United Nations using Drupal

The United Nations is using Drupal for their End Poverty Campaign. The site is part of a network of Drupal sites that stand up against poverty. This network of sites is part of the historic promise 189 world leaders made at the United Nations Millennium Summit in 2000 when they agreed to meet the Millennium Development Goals.

The End Poverty site was built by Development Seed. They told me that the United Nations has been pushing the envelope by funding the work on some forthcoming internationalization features that will be used to replicate some of their sites in multiple languages.

Glad to see that the United Nations are good (Drupal) community players. ;)

It is great to help make a product that many people like, but it is even better when that product helps improve the world a little bit!

How would've have thought that one day technology could help end poverty? What goes around comes around :)

I thought Drupal was just for poorly made political sites. I stand corrected.

We are in the process to move our site to Drupal as well. There simply is no better suited system for a site. I just need to find replacement in Drupal for the petition script we are running, and we are good to go.

This is one of the best designed Drupal sites around! Well done Development Seed.
