Global Heroes Project

By  June 16, 2009

Have you ever wondered what a hero looks like?

Verge is proud to introduce our 2009 Global Heroes: 14 men and women who are doing their part to make a difference in the developing world.

They range in age from 23 to 62 and also in experience—from those reflecting on their first experiences in international development and looking forward to related careers, to veterans who have been making a difference overseas for the last twenty years.

Read on to meet Verge’s Global Heroes and to learn about the outstanding contributions they are making in the world.
