    My experience of working with Google.org while at Google has been insightful to say the least. The wing that gives out free advertising clicks for non-profits or Google Grants has an illustrious history of supporting 100s of non-profits across 16 countries and increasing public awareness about non profit organisations and their projects. The ones from India being Akanksha, Planet Read, Room to Read, and a few others. Dr Larry Brilliant, the Director of Google.org had a cardinal role to play in eradicating small pox in India. I attended a 3 week workshop come lecture on issues of Global Poverty, Climate Change, and Social Development. It was informative and multi-dimensional!
