> Greetings from Ashoka’s Changemakers!
> Omidyar Network and Ashoka’s Changemakers recently hosted an online  
> competition, Property Rights: Identity, Dignity & Opportunity for  
> All to unleash opportunities for individuals and communities

> and solutions for millions. 19 semi-finalists from 9 countries have  
> been selected for their efforts to improve the lives of the poor  
> and transform communities through secure rights to land.
> Securing rights to land provides people with life-altering benefits—

> finalists have shown immense fortitude in helping communities gain  
> their rights to land.
> Until January 12, 2011, the Changemakers online community will Vote  
> for their preferred semi-finalists to help them emerge as  
> finalists. The finalists will then be evaluated by a distinguished  
> panel of judges to arrive at the three winning solutions.
