The World Best News initiative is a news information service which was started by Irish overseas aid agencies to draw attention to the positive and unusual stories from developing countries that don’t make it to the mainstream news, or which don’t receive much coverage. (Source: Dóchas)
Last year SERVE staff and volunteers took to the streets of Cork and Galway to distribute copies of the World’s Best News paper. Today we are returning to the streets of Cork and Galway…..and Belfast!
It is great to see the World’s Best News initiative growing each year. Often these positive stories do not get picked up by the mainstream media, and that is why the World’s Best News is such an important resource.
