Heifer International is one of InterAction's more than 190 member organizations working in developing countries around the world. We've referenced their NGO Aid Map, which has been operational since 2010, before, but it's worth revisiting. The site details more than 3,600 projects in 80-plus countries.

A post this week announces work on three new sub-sites on China, India and Mexico as well as further development work on the main site to help all members find ways to work together and learn from each other. The purpose of providing this open data is not "transparency for transparency's sake," but "ultimately, the goal is use – individuals and organizations acting on that data in ways that actually lead to improvements in people’s lives."

Heifer International is pleased to be included and applauds efforts to continue to refine and develop the already extensive and innovative map. If you have not seen it yet, check it out by going here. To view Heifer projects alone, go under organizations pull-down menu until you find us listed. Happy exploring!
