What's it all about

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. The aim of the news service is to change the perception of developing countries by highlighting these stories and so show the progress that is being made towards the eradication of poverty and hunger. As well as the annual print version, the news service also has online versions on FacebookTumblrInstagram and Flipboard, so please follow and share. 

Have a look a some of the images from around the country as it was handed out on the 17th:
