According to civilsociety.co.uk, CDI Apps for Good, Integrity Action, SolarAid and London Zoo are the four charities to win Google’s Global Impact challenge and receive GBP500,000 each. The competition aimed to support charities which are having a positive impact through their uses of technology.

The ten finalists pitched their ideas to the judges on the night of the awards. Three were then chosen by the panel but London Zoo won by public vote. As an added bonus, the six remaining finalists were awarded GBP100,000 each to develop their ideas.
